Asian American Community Health Certificate

This certificate is the first undergraduate certificate in Asian American community health in the United States.  It is the culmination of a unique academic-student-community partnership led by the Asian American and Asian Diaspora Studies Program (UC Berkeley), Asian Health Services (Oakland) and Asian American Pacific Islander Health Research Group (UC Berkeley). Students will have an opportunity to interact with many guest speakers who are at the forefront of community health research, grassroots activism, and advocacy.  Research and field opportunities will be available based on personal interest and community needs. 

*Note: You do not have to have completed any or all of the requirements by the time that you apply. Applying lets us know who is interested in completing the certificate program, so that we can check-in with you.

Students can apply anytime as CAACH has a rolling deadline.

Field Study

AAADS 197 is a 1-unit field study opportunity that offers a transformative and meaningful work-based learning experience for undergraduate students. The field study allows students to integrate knowledge and theory learned in the classroom with practical application and skills development in a professional setting. Students will be able to visit and learn about various community clinics, health centers, and community-based organizations across the San Francisco Bay Area.

*The field study can only be taken after completion of approved courses under CAACH (approved courses in Asian and Asian American History, Introduction to Community Health, and Contemporary AAPI Community Health Issues). 


The next Field Study course will be offered in Fall 2022.
