What Our Students Are Saying

Laila Zahra Harris

I can't speak highly enough about the Certificate in Caribbean Studies and the positive impact that it's had on my life. The courses are interesting and are taught by passionate, knowledgeable instructors. In just eight months, I feel that I have a much stronger foundation for my personal identity and family history, and an increased sense of pride in and awareness of my roots. It has been wonderful to learn about the various challenges and celebrations that contribute to the Caribbean experience in both local and global contexts, and I know that I will use what I've learned throughout my life!

The Chang School’s Certificate in Data Analytics, Big Data, and Predictive Analytics has given me a unique combination of essential, hands-on skills that allows me to excel in this competitive field. I was able to make professional connections through my courses, both with my classmates and my instructors, who are working subject matter experts. The program allowed me to build on my computer science degree and focus on big data tools and applications. I was looking to enter a field I was passionate about and to get a job I loved doing, and the skills and knowledge I gained from this program have been at the core of my career success.
