The School of Public Health has provided information for students who plan to study abroad. Review your department’s responses to the Major Advising Questionnaires below, then contact the department directly with any additional questions.
Berkeley Programs Questionnaire
Courses from these programs may satisfy our Public Health elective requirements, providing that the abroad courses in question closely match the pre-approved elective courses. Please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org to learn more about the process of evaluating a course for Public Health elective credit.
UCEAP Programs Questionnaire
Students in the Public Health major must take the five core courses here at Berkeley, but they are able to take elective courses through UCEAP, providing that the abroad courses in question closely match the pre-approved elective courses.
We have a list of courses that students have previously taken through UCEAP. Please email us at email@example.com with the program you are interested in to learn if our students have participated in the past and received credit. We encourage you to make an appointment with an adviser to plan your semester(s) abroad.
We do not have program plans available. However, we welcome you to make an appointment with an adviser to plan your semester(s) abroad.
Please submit a syllabus of the course to firstname.lastname@example.org. Make sure each syllabus provides answers to the following questions:
1. What is the course? (title and department)
2. Who is the professor?
3. What are the learning objectives?
4. What are the required readings for this course?
5. What is the final exam or project?
If the course syllabus is incomplete, please provide the appropriate supplemental materials needed for us to make a decision.
Our honors research thesis is a two semester process, PB HLTH H195A in Fall and PB HLTH H195B in Spring. Students are eligible to participate in our honors research thesis after UCEAP if they are able to commit to two semesters (Fall and Spring) during their last year at Berkeley. Enrollment in both the Fall and Spring course are required. Please note there are additional GPA requirements and prerequisites for the honors research thesis.
Only if they have taken a course that meets an elective requirement.
No; departmental honors are attained by completing the two semester honors research thesis.
The academic adviser signs the UCEAP planning form.
Students will receive an email from the department if they are receiving an advising hold prior to the registration period. If students are abroad on UCEAP, advising will be done via email.
Due to the timing of our core courses, it may be difficult for students to study abroad their final year. If possible, we suggest that students participate in programs during the summer. Please schedule an appointment with an adviser to create a program plan.
