In response to significant demand in the labour market for professionals with advanced data science skills, Trinity College Dublin is launching a new Postgraduate Diploma in Applied Social Data Science. The programme will be housed in the Department of Political Science, with support from the School of Computer Science and Statistics. The one-year, full-term postgraduate programme is supported by the Human Capital Initiative and aims to introduce students to fundamentals in quantitative social science research methods and state-of-the-art analytic approaches from the fields of statistics and machine learning. Graduates of the course will acquire a rich repertoire of social scientific research design skills - grounded in the scientific method - and data analytic methods that are widely sought after in the private, public, and non-profit sectors.
