2-for-1 Certificate Programs: Data Science and Data Analytics

Share This:

CSUF Extension & International Programs (EIP) now offers a program that lets you earn 2 certificates, Data Science and Data Analytics (DS/DA), in 10 months.

From 2020 to 2030, there is an astounding 25% projected job growth in the field of data science and data analytics. Our newly-refreshed program allows participants to take advantage of this growth and earn their credentials in less than a year. Plus, the DS/DA program is fully online, making it convenient for those who have a busy schedule and need flexibility. 

This opportunity is excellent for those who are interested in becoming or currently working as a:

  • Computer scientist/engineer
  • Data scientist/analyst
  • Statistician
  • Marketing strategist
  • Quality engineer

“Since data is everywhere, the job opportunities are also everywhere,” says Kevin Potcner, Statistical Scientist at JMP/SAS and Lead Instructor of the DS/DA Certificate Program. “Almost every industry and company size has opportunities for those competent in the statistical and data sciences.”

Potcner also points out that many businesses now expect their employees “to have a base level of data literacy regardless of the primary job function,” so a foundation of knowledge in this field can be beneficial to anyone.

For those who are interested in earning both Data Science and Data Analytics Certificates, registration is currently open on our website. The first class begins on Monday, February 14th, 2022. To learn more about the program and to register, visit
