It's a new year and spring is fast approaching – bringing wonderful weather, rejuvenation, and new growth. Designed to refresh careers and help students achieve their goals, the College of Extended Studies (CES) nurtures and prepares professionals by offering hundreds of programs and many opportunities to change your life.
We are pleased to introduce two new online programs – the fast-track master's in public administration and a professional online certificate in civil sitework construction. In 16 months, you can earn a master's degree in public administration by learning the modern principles of a public administrator to become an industry leader. The online professional certificate in civil sitework provides a full range of civil site education for residential subdivisions, single, and multifamily residences and commercial developments. This new certificate offers online learning and career paths for site development professionals.
From January 24-26th we will celebrate the 30th anniversary of our annual SDSU Writers' Conference. We are excited to announce that New York Times bestselling author Sylvia Day and senior vice president and executive editor at William Morrow and Avon Books Carrie Feron will join us as the keynote speakers at the conference. Another event SDSU is hosting is a marketing and media seminar, Creativity: Mind and Body. This body and mind training seminar is designed to increase creative cognitive abilities. Ideal for individuals who produce creative ideas, innovate, or problem-solve – this six-hour forum teaches you how to unleash creativity fast.
With a variety of in-class and online certificate programs, SDSU continues to assist veterans, active-duty military, Department of Defense civilians, and military spouses by preparing them for life after the military. We also support the unemployed through programs such as tuition assistance, grants, and contracts in collaboration with the San Diego Workforce Partnership.
