I offer two data science classes in the Government Department:
- Gov 1005: Data
- Gov 1006: Models

Gov 1005 has no prerequisites. Think of it as Data Science for Everyone. No course at Harvard does a better job of increasing your odds of achieving the future — the internship, job, graduate school, career — that you want. Student evaluations for Fall 2018: numeric and written.

Gov 1006 has 1005 as a prerequisite. Think of it as Data Science for Political Science. It is designed to prepare students for success in the Government Department’s Data Science Program. It has not been offered before.
