What statistics courses should I take to become a data scientist?

Answer by William Chen:

General Courses

In general, I would recommend statistics courses that fall into the following categories:

  1. Classes that introduce you to data science and probability
  2. A class that involves getting, cleaning, and manipulating data
  3. A class that involves machine learning
  4. A class that involves data analysis (as many as you can)
  5. A class that involves predictive modeling

Specific Courses

I'm going to list the statistics courses that I outlined at What classes should I take if I want to become a data scientist?. These are some of the statistics classes that would be very helpful for a data science career.
