Last year, online colleges and universities enrolled nearly 2.79 million students—almost 15% of all U.S. postsecondary learners. San Diego State University is emerging as a leader in this growing area with flexible learning opportunities designed for today’s students.

Through SDSU Global Campus, the university offers a dynamic and accessible gateway to public health education that aligns seamlessly with the working adult’s career aspirations. These online public health programs also give students access to many of the same faculty members, resources, and support services that SDSU’s on-campus students enjoy. With Global Campus, you can be an integral part of the Aztec community without ever setting foot on campus.
