We require a bachelor's degree from an accredited institution or recognized equivalent and sufficient undergraduate education for graduate work in your chosen field.
Undergraduate-level courses in 1) linear algebra and 2) probability or statistics
UC Berkeley equivalent courses:
A minimum of one course in linear algebra and one course in probability or statistics is required for admission.
It is recommended that linear algebra and probability or statistics courses are completed by the spring semester before the intended admission term; however, having prerequisites successfully completed at the time of application increases the competitiveness of the application. Online and/or extension courses from accredited colleges/universities are acceptable.
Fluency in a computer programming language
Fluency in a computer programming language is recommended by the intended admission term; however, fluency at the time of application increases the competitiveness of the application.
Completing programming coursework at an accredited institution is preferred, but you can take coursework and/or submit certificates from other programs, such as Lynda, EdX, or Coursera.
Programming coursework information can be included and uploaded (if applicable) with the application. Do not include coursework from programs such as Lynda, EdX, or Coursera in the Academic History section of the application. Instead, please list this information on your resume and add coursework information and/or certificates to your transcript upload.
