The UCLA Fielding School of Public Health has established degree requirements that largely mirror the requirements of the UCLA College. Students admitted to either the BA or BS must satisfy the following degree requirements:
NOTE FOR TRANSFER STUDENTS: Transfer students who completed IGETC and submitted the certification to UCLA Undergraduate Admission will be exempt from the school’s Writing I and II, Quantitative Reasoning, and General Education requirements. An additional English Composition course may be required due to placement results of English as a Second Language Placement Exam (ESLPE).
Please see requirements outlined here.
Students must satisfactorily complete for credit a minimum of 180 units for the bachelor’s degree. At least 60 of the 180 units must be upper-division courses numbered 100 through 199. A maximum of 216 units may be permitted. Advanced Placement Examination and International Baccalaureate Examination (transfer) credits are not counted toward the unit maximum.
Students must earn at least a 2.0 (C) grade-point average (GPA) in all courses undertaken at UCLA to receive a bachelor’s degree. Students must also earn a 2.0 GPA in a major and satisfy both the course and scholarship requirements for the major, including preparation for the major.
