Start Learning for FreeTaking your first course in R is just the beginning of a journey - if you’d like to create an excellent data science resumé and portfolio, you can start a skill or career track and work towards gaining a professional certification in data science or data analysis.

Our certifications are based on in-depth analysis of data science jobs and their requirements, so the assessments are designed to show that you’re ready for a demanding and lucrative job as a data scientist or analyst.

You can start your assessments straight away if you already have strong R experience, or take a certification preparation track if you’d prefer to brush up on your skills first.

It depends on your end goal and why you want to learn R.

Let’s say you already work in finance and you’d like to learn how to manipulate and analyze financial data. You should learn how to use R as a calculator alongside R vectors, matrices, and data frames—all of which are covered in DataCamp’s Introduction to R for Finance.

If you want to become a data scientist or analyst, you should learn how to import, clean, and visualize data with R. You’ll also want to learn how to navigate and use the tidyverse and popular R packages such as ggplot2.

Or perhaps you want to learn R for marketing analytics, in which case you’ll learn how to measure user engagement, analyze your business competitors, and glean intel from social media with the help of R.

When you learn R with DataCamp, you can take advantage of our skilled instructors and our tried and tested learning method.

We've fine-tuned this method over many years, and we know how to make learning R immersive, engaging, and most importantly, easy to retain. If you're starting from scatch and want to become an expert, we've designed Tracks to help you build a well-rounded skill set in R.

Skill Tracks such as R Programming will teach you now to code like a programmer and prepare you for complex tasks like advanced data visualization. If you're focused on career goals rather than specific skills, Data Scientist with R, and R Programmer will get you career-ready and teach you how perform key tasks for your chosen role.
