Scientific Computing (Psychology 9040a)

Fall, 2020

The goal of this one-semester graduate seminar is to provide you with skills in scientific computing—tools and techniques that you can use in your own research.

You will learn to program in Python, which is a high-level programming language with many libraries that provide a rich ecosystem for scientific computing.

Here is a link to a tentative syllabus (and as a pdf).


Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the course will not have any in-person component.

This year the course will be run online/remote using downloadable videos and online course materials.

We will have some opportunity for optional, non-mandatory, synchronous online sessions over Zoom:
