Honoursmodule: Scientific Programming 101

This course is a great starting point to learn computer programming in Python, one of the most used programming languages in the world. Python is used for applications such as web development, data science and machine learning. This course starts out with the absolute basics of programming (no prior programming knowledge is required). You will learn Python through a series of programming problems from several scientific areas, with a strong focus on humanities related subjects (check the course website for more details). After completing the course you will know the principles of programming, be able to apply them to any domain and use them for your own projects.
