Big Data may be a major Silicon Valley buzzword at the moment, but don’t expect a new online data science master’s degree program at the University of California, Berkeley to get too caught up in the fad. Starting in January 2014, Berkeley’s School of Information, or I School, will offer the country’s first fully online Master of Information and Data Science (MIDS) degree program, the university announced Wednesday. While students will learn the mechanics to analyze millions of rows of data, courses will also cover other elements of data visualization, machine learning, database analysis and data security.
