The Master of Information and Data Science (MIDS) is a degree program delivered online for professionals looking to become leaders in the field of data science. The program features a multidisciplinary approach that encompasses the entire data life cycle, from planning and gathering data to analyzing and presenting findings. Course work in this program examines issues of privacy, explores machine learning, and considers techniques for data storage and management.

Students in the program benefit from UC Berkeley’s strong ties to the Bay Area and Silicon Valley.

  • Class sessions are delivered live in an online classroom.
  • Classes are taught by many of the same School of Information (I School) faculty and data science professionals who teach in our on-campus programs.
  • Students are fully engaged members of the UC Berkeley I School community.

 
At the recent GigaOm Structure Data 2014 conference, UC Berkeley I School Dean Anna Lee Saxenian took to the stage to discuss the future of data science education and how top-tier training will help tomorrow’s data science professionals. She also spoke about the I School’s MIDS program and the role it plays in shaping the next generation of data science leaders.
