Conversations in Data Science in Human Behavior

Webinars, Conversations & Assistance

The Psychology master’s program is proud to present a series of webinars to engage meaningful discussions in the behavioral data science community. In addition to program overview webinars, the series also includes Faculty Fridays, which is a monthly opportunity to have a virtual conversation with a faculty member and program manager.  In November, the series we will host an innovation webinar that will bring in non-academic partners to discuss the types of real-world behavioral data science problems that are faced in industry, non-profits and government agencies. Don’t miss our faculty spotlight panel in December where you will hear from faculty about their views on current topics in behavioral data science.
