Take a Class with Us

Taking a Public Health course is a thought-provoking way to learn about health while also earning academic credit.

Whether you want to learn more about particular health topics or are exploring a career in public health, we have classes that will hone your critical thinking skills and underscore the power of prevention in health care.

Academic Courses

Health Promotion staff serve as instructors of several general enrollment courses for Cal students. Below are courses we have offered in recent years; see...

Refresh for Finals - RRR Week Tips

During Reading/Review/Recitation (RRR) Week add a 4th "R" for Refresh.

Cal Bears Say Hi

The CalBearsSayHi campaign invites us to slow down long enough to make contact, say “Hi” to other students and enhance your sense of belonging and community.

Social support is all-important to our health and success. Studies confirm what many of us know about the benefits of having friends you can confide in, laugh with, cry with and hang out with. Having campus friends and acquaintances translates to lowered stress levels, a heartier immune system, and an increased ability to concentrate and learn.
