Current students in higher education, BUSPH alumni, along with BU faculty and staff, will receive a 25 percent discount on all offerings.

Clearly written text and well-designed tables and figures enhance understanding; poorly written text and poorly designed tables and figures create confusion.
This program introduces students to statistical computing with focus on the SAS package. Emphasis is on manipulating data sets and basic statistical procedures such as t-tests, chi-square tests, and correlation.
With a Story Map, you can combine your maps with narrative text that you create and edit on demand, images, and multimedia content to create compelling, user-friendly web apps (known as Story Maps) that simply tell the story of your data.
Learn how to successfully plan an intervention that is theory-driven, evidence-based, feasible, and evaluable.
