Welcome to WR 410/510

Course Description

This course is an 8-week “coding bootcamp” style course for graduate and advanced undergraduate students in the sciences, social sciences, and humanities who need coding and computer literacies to support their professional development and research activities.

The course will generally follow the Harvard CS50 Intro to Computer Science curriculum (Available free on EdX), although after the introductory material students will be able to focus their interests to suit their professional goals (e.g., Python for data analytics or HTML, CSS, and JavaScript for web development).

Your instructor will support student learning, provide additional instruction and resources, and support student projects.

This course fulfills a Technical Communication Elective for students in the Master’s in Professional and Technical Writing program and elective credit in other degree programs.
