Updates to the Data Science Path

Good news! We're making several changes to the Data Science Path.

Why?

Everything can always improve! We took a hard look at our Data Science Career Path and identified ways to make the content teach better, dive deeper, and set our learners up for greater success!

We're adding several lessons, projects, articles and quizzes to introduce and scaffold important concepts in data science. We also know how important practice is in cementing learning, so we've added several new in-depth projects to the path. You'll learn how to analyze real-world data across a variety of industries and tie together everything you've learned.

How does this impact you?

If you've already started or completed the Data Science Path, you will see some new content added to the Path.

You won’t lose progress on the coursework that you’ve already completed; however, you may notice that your overall progress percentage has decreased, as there is a greater amount of content included in the Path.

When?

The lessons will be updated beginning at 10:00 AM EDT on Friday, August 8th, 2019. We expect the updates to be finalized by 7:00 PM EDT the same day.

Take a look below to get an overview of the updates.
