Professional Education is a more flexible way to go to college and advance your career. Courses are available on campus, off-campus, online and during academic gap periods. All courses are taught by SJSU faculty for college credit. Courses are available through the following programs:

Academic Programs: Earn a graduate degree or certificate to advance your professional career while continuing to work.

Open University: Disqualified SJSU students and the general community interested in taking college courses may enroll.

Winter Session: Earn up to 4 units in 2 weeks on campus or online to lighten your spring course load.

Summer Session: Take 5- to 10-week courses on campus or online to get ahead or catch up on courses you need.

CEU Professional Development: Partner with SJSU to help students from a variety of professions meet their industry's continuing education requirements.

We are excited to announce that SJSU’s College of International and Extended Studies (CIES) has changed its name to the College of Professional and Global Education (CPGE).

The new title will better align with the mission of the college, the university, and its programs to connect the educational and workforce needs of the University, the region, and the world in service to our domestic and international students. Our programs and services will continue to provide professional and global opportunities for academic and career advancement.
