Along with Java and Python, SQL is one of the most widely used programming languages. It's most often employed in organizing and managing relational data, making it ideal for data analysis. It's also a little simpler to learn as a beginner than other coding languages, and can be a great skill to build on its own or in addition to another programming language like Python.

Like other coding classes, many great online SQL resources are either free, quick introductions (to see if you like it), or longer professional certificate programs that cost less than a master's degree. Below are online courses from e-learning platforms such as edX, Coursera, Codecademy, FutureLearn, LinkedIn Learning, and Udemy, with some offered by schools like Harvard, Duke, the University of Michigan, and more.
