Yes.

**How do students in the class of 2018 become S&DS majors?**

Once the registrar sets things up correctly, the procedure should be the same as for every other major.

**Can you explain category B?**

Category B has courses that contain 4 types of computational skills. You need to acquire at least 2 types. The 4 types are:

- Introduction to data ingestion, analysis, and cleaning: S&DS 220 or 230
- Advanced data analysis: S&DS 325 or 425
- Introduction to programming, CS style: CPSC 100, 112 or ENAS 130. Students who already know how to program may skip these and instead count CPSC 201 or 223. We recommend against ENAS 130.
- Intro to Machine Learning style data analysis and HPC: S&DS 262.
