Professional Certificates

SDSU Global Campus provides Professional Certificate programs in various fields, including construction and hospitality, to accommodate busy working professionals looking to advance their careers.

Advanced Certificates

Unlike regular Professional Certificates, Advanced Certificates are formal academic credentials at the graduate level offered by San Diego State University. Students must complete the standard SDSU application and be admitted to the university before they can enroll in Advanced Certificate courses. Just like Professional Certificates, they can help you demonstrate to current or future employers your desire to keep learning and adding new skills to your resume, which can help with promotions and finding new career opportunities.

Open University Certificates

Our Open University program allows you to enroll in undergraduate or graduate courses at SDSU without formally applying or being admitted to the university. Open University students can register for classes on a space-available basis. 

By completing specific course sequences through Open University, students can earn Open University Certificates from SDSU to demonstrate academic and skill achievement. The online format provides flexible access to SDSU coursework for personal enrichment or professional development without requiring full university admission.
