Relevance and originality of the programme
This programme is unique because it is the first programme in Russia to offer a comprehensive approach to data analysis in different areas. As part of the programme, students from different disciplines can come together to solve practical analytical problems.
Those mathematically inclined gain an understanding of sociology and the object of research, while those with a background in the humanities will be able to build their skillset and gain a deeper understanding of statistical processes making up the data analysis that we teach. In addition, a special focus of the programme will be the analysis of social networks , a direction of data science that is becoming increasingly popular in foreign and Russian research practice.
One of the main goals of the programme is to combine a modern approach to data analysis with the theory of social processes. It provides a holistic view of the theoretical and methodological basics, allowing students to select the approach best fitted to particular research questions, as well as giving them an understanding of the data structure to combine numerous statistical tools to solve practical problems.
