In 2004, UC Berkeley had 300 data science graduates. This semester, the number of students spiked to 1,000 causing the university to add the new undergraduate degree to the School of Science and Letters. The degree is the first to be added in 16 years.

"No program has grown this fast at Berkeley," said David Culler, interim dean of the Division of Data Sciences, which was established in December.

Other UC campuses are scrambling to add the data courses to meet demands. UC San Diego, Santa Cruz and Davis have expanded programs. UC Irvine was the first to offer a data science degree in 2014.
