All course work for the Public Health major is to be taken for a letter grade (with the exception of possible electives PB HLTH 116 and PB HLTH 104 A/B, which are Pass/No Pass only).

Due to accreditation changes instituted by the Council on Education in Public Health (CEPH), Berkeley Public Health undergraduate students graduating in 2017 and afterwards must abide by the new major completion requirements. Students with a graduation date set before Spring 2017 may continue to use the old requirements.

  • PB HLTH 150E
    Introduction to Community Health and Human Development (3) (spring only)

    • Students who are public health majors or plan to be public health majors must take PH 150E. The course CYPLAN 117AC will not be accepted as part of the major requirements. If a student has taken CYPLAN 117AC and are a public health major, they will be required to take/retake the course as PH 150E. Please plan accordingly.
  • DATA 8 (Previously known as STAT/COMPSCI/INFO C8)
    Data 8 Foundations of Data Science (4) (fall, summer and spring)

    • Only required for the graduating class of spring 2021 and onward

      • For students who took Data 8 Spring 2019 or earlier, we will accept a Pass if the class was taken P/NP. Students taking Data 8 Summer 2019 and onward must take the course for a grade.
      • Data 8 is not a public health prerequisite; it is a major requirement. You do not have to complete Data 8 before applying to the public health major, although it is strongly encouraged to plan to complete it during your freshman or sophomore year (if a transfer student, during your first semester of attendance at UC Berkeley) for planning purposes.

Ten Elective Units

Four of the 10 elective units must be Upper Division. Electives must be taken for a letter grade (with the exception of PB HLTH 116 and PB HLTH 104 A/B, which are Pass/No Pass only).

Public Health Elective Petition Process

If you would like to petition courses that are not currently on the approved list of electives that can found on Curriculum for the Bachelor of Arts in Public Health Program page, you will have to submit a petition via the Public Health Elective Petition Process Form.

You will have to provide a syllabus of the course you wish to petition and course(s) you find it similar to that are already approved electives. We recommend students reach out to the professors, advisors, or department of the class to obtain the syllabus. Your petition will be processed with a decision within 3-4 weeks. You may petition a class before, during, or after taking it. You must be a public health major to petition a class. Core and capstone classes cannot be petitioned; this function is for electives only. Electives being petitioned must be taken for a letter grade.


Public Health Internship or Research Units (PH 197/198/199)

To obtain credit within the Public Health department for an internship or research, your first step is to identify a UC Berkeley Public Health faculty member to work with you. Once you find a faculty sponsor, they would email our course scheduler to create a PH 197/198/or 199 course for you. The meetings and assignments would be determined by your faculty member. Please note, if you feel your internship would align with another department, you may also consider requesting academic credit from another department on campus. For more information, please see the Career Center’s guidelines for receiving internship academic credit.

Career Center’s guidelines for receiving internship academic credit


Public Health Major Capstone Requirement

The capstone requirement for the undergraduate Public Health major is designed to review, integrate, and apply concepts and methods presented in the core breadth courses.

  • The Capstone Requirement must be taken for a letter grade and fulfilled in your senior year. Previous coursework does not apply.
  • The Capstone course you select cannot be used to fulfill the PH elective unit requirement.
  • Priority is given to graduating students who need to satisfy the Public Health Capstone Requirement opposed to those interested in taking the course as an elective.

Note: the options listed below are for the 2020-2021 academic year and are subject to change.

Capstone Course Options

Fall 2021

This applied course will help you understand how to conduct and interpret research in human health and disease, building on your knowledge of epidemiology and biostatistics and other content areas in public health. The course will provide skills in: critically reading the literature related to public health-related research; developing a research question and a testable hypothesis; and creating an analysis plan. The course will cover quantitative and qualitative research methods, with an emphasis on quantitative methods. The course will also include the development of a human subjects research protocol. All students will have a hands-on, guided experience analyzing data using R. This course is open to students interested in the research process in public health and medicine. Students must have successfully completed PH 142 and PH 150A. (3.0 Units, 50-54 students, Instructors: Thompson, Hannah).

NOTE: Students who are interested in completing capstone by pursuing an Honors Thesis in Public Health must enroll in the Senior Research Seminar course above for the Fall. No exceptions. Additional information regarding Honors Thesis can be found here.

This capstone course will enhance student preparation to be effective public health practitioners through application of core knowledge, strengthening essential professional skills and development of post-graduation career and graduate education plans. Students will tackle real-world public health cases and emerging local challenges to enhance essential problem solving and innovation skills. Students will also enhance key communication, team and project skills. Leading professionals from a range of public health organizations will be engaged in the course to enhance student exposure, networking and opportunities. A key focus of the course will be students developing a clearer understanding of how their unique aspirations and strengths connect to emerging career and post-graduation options and how they can best prepare. (3.0 Units, 60-72 students, Instructor: Williams, K.).


Class# 32183

Please note that for Graduate level capstones you will need to reach out to the Prof for a permission number.

This course will take a solutions-oriented approach to addressing the pressing problems in current food systems. We will explore strategies used by the disciplines of agroecology, policy, law, public health, and business in working to improve food systems and apply their varied approaches to real-world case studies. Through weekly readings, discussions, and problem-solving sessions with Berkeley’s leading food systems experts, students will gain a broad understanding of food systems and the leverage points that can be targeted to improve the health of people and the planet.  (3.0 Units, 10 students, Instructor: Fernald, Lia).

Please note that for Graduate level capstones you will need to reach out to the Professor for a permission number.

Nutrition plays a vital role in human reproduction and child growth and development. This course provides an overview of the major nutritional issues faced by women of childbearing age, infants, children and adolescents in the United States and globally, with selected topics explored in greater depth. In addition to academic knowledge, this course offers students the opportunity to apply practical knowledge of nutrition on a personal level. This course includes a field component in which students meet local-level public health professionals/agencies (e.g. visits to WIC clinics, food banks, government organizations, more). The final paper will allow students to delve deeply into a particular topic of interest to them. The course is applicable to students interested in community nutrition, maternal and child health, food security, and food systems and opportunity to integrate and synthesize their knowledge. (3.0 Units, 10 students, Instructor: Zyba, Sarah).

Please note that for Graduate level capstones you will need to reach out to the Professor for a permission number.

This is a fast-paced, exciting advanced course in the molecular aspects of parasite immunology, molecular biology, genetics, biochemistry, and genomics. For each parasite, the following areas will be covered: biology (history, classification/taxonomy, life cycle), disease spectrum/clinical manifestations, epidemiology (distribution, impact), pathogenesis, immunology (host immune response, immunopathology), vaccine development, and genomics. The lectures will focus “state-of-the-art” research and knowledge in these areas in relation to molecular mechanisms of pathogenesis, parasite adaptions for survival within the host, and strategies for drug and vaccine development. Course content will rely heavily on current literature. Readings are required and consist of one review article about each parasite and several primary research articles on selected topics that will be focused upon in the lectures. (3.0 Units, 5-10 students, Instructor: Harris, E).

Spring 2022

This class will give you the opportunity to build upon your learnings over the past 2+ years as Public Health majors. Whether your primary interest in public health is focused on environmental health, maternal health, nutritional health, mental health, healthcare or another area of focus, this class will provide you with tools to move your policy choices into and through the political realm to adoption.  In this course you will become engaged health policy analysts, applying policymaking tools (e.g., policy memos/briefs, legislative analysis, regulatory comments, media advocacy, public testimony) to actual health issues and problems.  Through individual and group work, you will draw upon both verbal and written communication skills to learn how to effectuate health policy change.  Students must have successfully completed PH 150D before enrolling in this course (3.0 Units, 2 sections: 30 students per section, Instructor: Flagg, Robin).

This course explores a wide variety of public health issues related to drinking water in both developed and developing countries. The approach is a case-based study of microbial, chemical and radiological contamination events in drinking water systems world- wide. We explore the health effects, health interventions (prevention and communication), water treatment interventions and policies/regulations. We also explore the role of stakeholders such as water utilities, NGOs, civil society, and support agencies such as UNDP, and WHO. The course includes a field project using a mobile-GIS App for water assets, and provides context to understand how asset inventory relates to public health. This exercise can be applied to other assets such as health clinics and pharmaceutical dispensaries. Students must have successfully completed PH 150B (or similar) before enrolling in this course (3.0 Units, 20 students, Instructor: Smith, Charlotte).

Please note that for Graduate level capstones you will need to reach out to the Professor for a permission number.

This introductory course will emphasize infectious diseases of public health importance focusing on the core concepts of infectious disease transmission, evidence-based approaches for prevention and control, and epidemiologic methods for studying infectious diseases. The course is organized around two primary modules: 1) methods of infectious disease epidemiology; and 2) routes of transmission and associated prevention and control measures. Within each module, students will consider the range of clinical, methodological and ethical challenges faced by infectious disease epidemiologists and public health practitioners. Major infectious diseases will be discussed with an emphasis on disease surveillance, investigative procedures, and prevention programs. Current problems in health agencies at a state, national, and international level will be emphasized. Successful completion of PH 150A is a prerequisite for this course. (3.0 Units, 5-10 students, Instructors: Lewnard, Joseph).
