The Division of Data Sciences is a new academic unit at UC Berkeley that will offer innovative degree programs and nurture research initiatives furthering the campus’ position at the forefront of data science research and education. Launched in May 2017, the new division was established as one of Berkeley’s schools and colleges and serves as a versatile hub for collaboration and partnership across the hundreds of faculty and many schools, departments, and institutes involved in data science across campus.

The Division is also home to the Data Science Education Program, which has grown exponentially from its launch in 2015 and offers an interdisciplinary curriculum that provides a foundation for Berkeley undergraduates of all majors to engage capably and critically with data.
