Continuing Education

Continuing Education

Continuing education is rapidly becoming mandatory for successful career-minded professionals. Even after getting a degree, most people find that learning new job skills or updating old ones is something that benefits both their career and their paychecks. And lifelong learning is for everyone.

Continuing Education


UC San Diego Extension is open to the public. Each year more than 4,600 courses and 100 certificate programs are offered online or in person at one of our three San Diego campuses.
