UC Berkeley School of Information Launches Online Master of Information and Data Science Program

The UC Berkeley School of Information has launched an online Master of Information and Data Science program.

Here's an excerpt from the announcement:

The I School is staking out new master's degree territory in educating data scientists. While other institutions provide individual classes, certificates, or associate master's degrees in data science, the I School has designed a comprehensive and integrated suite of courses that culminate in a capstone course designed to solidify a student's knowledge of the breadth of data science concepts and skills.

The rigorous new 27-unit MIDS program officially begins in January 2014. Aimed at the working professional, the program will be offered online—except for a required, one-week immersion program at the I School's home at South Hall, to meet in person and explore the Bay Area tech environment.
