The minor in Data Science has been approved for all undergraduate students. Students can declare the minor as soon as it becomes available on CalCentral. We expect this to happen sometime this fall or next spring in time for students graduating in Spring 2020 or later.
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.
