Course Description

This practicum will mimic the typical conditions that students would face in an internship in a

large data-intense institution. The practicum will focus on four core elements involved in most

internships:

• developing the intuition and skills to properly scope ambiguous project ideas;

• practicing organizing and accessing a variety of large-scale data sources and formats;

• conducting basic and advanced analysis of big data; and

• communicating and “productizing” results and findings from the earlier steps, in things

like dashboards, reports, interactive graphics, or apps.

The practicum will also give students time to reflect on their work, and how it would best

translate into corporate, non-profit, start-up and other contexts.
