Eligibility Criteria

  • The general requirement for admission for a U.S. student is a bachelor’s degree from a regionally accredited institution, comparable in standard and content to a bachelor’s degree from the University of California. A scholastic average of B (3.0 on a 4.0 scale) or better is required or its equivalent if the letter grade system is not used—for the last 60 semester units or last 90 quarter units of undergraduate study and in any post-baccalaureate study.
  • Degrees which are not considered comparable include those granted on the basis of work completed at institutions which are not fully accredited and those granted on the basis of non-academic prior learning, test scores, or other than organized supervised coursework in academic subjects.
  • An international student whose post-secondary education is completed outside of the U.S. is expected to hold a degree representing completion of at least four years of study with above average scholarship from a university or university-level institution.
  • Minimum scores in TOEFL(on the paper and pencil test must be at least 560 or at least 87 on the internet-based test.) and IELTS(7.0)
  • Bachelor's (or advanced) degrees in life sciences, physical sciences, or engineering. Well-prepared applicants have basic knowledge of physics, biology, mathematics (through calculus), general chemistry, organic chemistry, and biochemistry. Applicants without this background but who have a significat interest in pursuing a maser's degree in Environmental Health Sciences should apply for the MPH program with a specialization in Environmental Health Sciences.
