Academic Classes in Public Health

Erica Browne

For course offerings, please contact health promotion at (510) 642-7202.

Taking a Public Health course is a thought-provoking way to learn about health and earn academic credit at the same time. Whether you want to learn more about particular health topics or are exploring a career in public health, we have classes for you. All our courses teach critical thinking skills as well as focus on the power of prevention.

Our courses fall into two main categories:

  • General enrollment classes open to students enrolled at Cal.
  • Peer education programs where students earn academic credit through courses that combine academic course work and field experiences as peer health educators. These programs generally require an application and interview process.

There are also opportunities for you to do meaningful health-based work with students and the Berkeley/Oakland communities on a volunteer basis:

  • Become an HIV Outreach Worker! Outreach workers receive training through the Berkeley Free Clinic to provide HIV prevention outreach to college age populations. This opportunity is made available through the Berkeley Builds Capacity (BBC) project sponsored by University Health Services and Berkeley Free Clinic. For additional BBC information visit
