Hood College, a liberal arts college in Frederick, is working with Google to offer its students classes about the foundations of computer and data science, the college announced Thursday.

The college said in a news release that it is one of 20 higher education institutions chosen nationally to work with Google on its Applied Computing Series initiative. Hood College computer science professors Aijuan Dong, George Dimitoglou and Jiang Li worked together to apply to Google for the initiative, in which Google provides the course content and platform for free.

The two Google-created classes in the initiative are Foundations of Python Programming and How to Think Like a Data Scientist.

The two new courses will strengthen the computer science department’s offerings in data science, data mining and machine learning, Dimitoglou said in a statement.
