“4+1” Master of Public Health (One-year MPH)

For recipients of an Undergraduate BA from Berkeley Public Health

This pilot program is currently pending approval for the upcoming Fall 2020 application cycle. You may contact an academic advisor for more information.

Only UC Berkeley Undergraduate Public Health majors graduating 2017 or later, who have completed all requirements before August of the application year, will be eligible to apply for this program.

The 4+1 is an accelerated Master of Public Health (MPH) degree program for those who have completed the Undergraduate Public Health BA program at UC Berkeley. There are three participating programs within the school aligned with the 4+1 program:

  • Epidemiology/Biostatistics
  • Infectious Disease and Vaccinology
  • Public Health Nutrition

Those qualifying for this program can contact an advisor for more information. This program is only open to a select population, and details of the curriculum are highly specific to the applicant. More detailed information will be provided upon review of applicant eligibility and intent.

Applicants who are not admitted to the 4+1 program may be directed by an advisor to a similar two-year program at Berkeley Public Health.
