Data Analytics Microcourses:

A new online learning option, providing a manageable pace towards a credential for those already balancing demanding work-life obligations. These 4-week courses cover one-third of the content of a full semester course. Three microcourses stack into a three credit hour course and multiple courses can be stacked into a data analytics certificate. After completing 5 graduate courses in as few as 7 months, learners can earn an academic certificate and then need just 5 more courses to earn a master’s degree. After completing 5 undergraduate courses, learners earn an academic certificate, which can be a standalone certificate or part of an undergraduate degree such as the UNT Bachelor of Applied Arts and Science degree. Earning a data analytics academic certificate or a degree from UNT is a great way to demonstrate your expertise and advance your career!
