Based on changes to L&S and campus policy, courses completed at UC Berkeley with a grade of Pass in Spring 2020, Fall 2020, Spring 2021 or Summer 2021 will count toward Data Science minor requirements. Please see the L&S P/NP policy modifications for more information.
Effective Fall 2019: UC Berkeley requires all students to declare a minor at least 1 semester in advance of graduation.
Effective Fall 2021: The class registration system enforces completion of the required pre/co-requisites to enroll in Data C100. Please see our Data 001 Piazza post for full details.
The Minor in Data Science at UC Berkeley aims to provide students with practical knowledge of the methods and techniques of data analysis, as well as the ability to think critically about the construction and implications of data analysis and models. The minor will empower students across the wide array of campus disciplines with a working knowledge of statistics, probability, and computation that allow students not just to participate in data science projects, but to design and carry out rigorous computational and inferential analysis for their field of interest.
