The end of the year is already approaching! It’s time to set goals for 2023, and what better New Year’s resolution than to advance your education or career?
At CSUF Extension & International Programs (EIP), there are several ways we can help you advance in your educational and professional life. Let’s review the programs we offer and help you find the right one for your resolution.
Short-term certificate programs
Earning a certificate can help you advance in your organization, change careers, or help make hiring and promotion decisions. Our certificate programs are currently online and are ideal if you have a busy schedule as they are short term and can be completed in as little as 3 months. We offer certificates in the areas of Business, Crime & Forensics, Legal & Fiduciary Management and Technology & Engineering.
Online Bachelor Degree Programs
Do you enjoy the convenience of online learning? At CSUF EIP you can earn an online bachelor’s degree* in business administration, sociology or humanities and social sciences. You’ll receive the same degree and attend the same graduation ceremony as on campus without worrying about parking and transportation costs. Better yet, if you’re currently working, contact your organization’s human resources department to find out how you can use your employer’s tuition reimbursement.
*Creditable units are required for admission to an online bachelor’s degree. Visit the EIP website for a list of the minimum units required for each program.
Flexible master programs
If you want to attend graduate school but just can’t find the time due to your busy work schedule, our master’s programs are designed to help you. With flexible options such as evening or weekend classes, or an accelerated schedule, earning a master’s degree has never been so convenient. You can choose from 4 different areas: software engineering, business administration, social work and consulting.
Be curious about our Accelerated Master in Applied Computer Science, which will be accepting applications from autumn 2023 for a start date in autumn 2024. Graduate with an MS in just 1.5 years!
Take advantage of your employer’s tuition reimbursement program. If you don’t use it, you’ll lose it this year. Talk to your HR manager.
summer and winter sessions
Did you know that taking courses for your summer or winter degree can help you stay on track or even speed up your graduation date? With the Summer and Winter Session at CSUF EIP, you can complete prerequisites, take internship courses, or take classes you weren’t able to take in the fall or spring! Note: This is for students already admitted to CSUF.
Courses and programs for educators
Are you an aspiring or current educator or administrator in California? We partner with the CSUF College of Education to bring you complete online teacher courses and programs to help you complete credentials, meet prerequisites, and more.
Pre-Health Postbaccalaureate Program
If you have earned a degree in a non-scientific field of study but are looking to make a career change and enter the medical field, we can help you prepare! Our Pre-Health Postbaccalaureate Program will help you become a competitive medical school applicant, regardless of your academic background.
We also have programs for students with some science background. If you have completed at least one year of general biology and general chemistry, our Academic Finisher program allows you to complete your remaining medical school requirements in just one year.
We offer those who are not currently admitted to CSUF the opportunity to take the same courses at the undergraduate or graduate level as an enrolled student. Enroll in the Open University to meet eligibility requirements, improve your GPA for readmission, take work-related courses, and more.
You have many options to choose from for your New Year’s resolution! In 2023, it’s time to advance your career, advance your education, or simply learn something new. Don’t miss out on the coming year!
