Berkeley’s undergraduate Data Science programs will include a requirement for students to learn about the human, social, and ethical contexts in which data analytics and computational inference play a central role. Two pilot HCE classes were offered in Spring 2018, and as the Data Science programs grow, there is space for many more.
