It covers everything from testing hypotheses, applying statistical inferences, visualizing distributions and drawing conclusions—all while coding in Python and using real world data sets.

The course is taught by award-winning Berkeley professors and designed by a team of faculty working together across Berkeley’s Computer Science and Statistics Departments, led by RISE faculty Michael Jordan.

The three 5-week online courses cover:

Each course is free on edX, and the whole sequence is available as a Foundations of Data Science Professional Certificate Program.
