Academic Programs (AP) allow working people and students to earn graduate degrees and certificates at their own pace and schedule, often online or off campus. 

The courses may be offered in the Silicon Valley or online. Most AP programs provide opportunities for master's degrees and certificates in your profession. Rather than just taking an extension course, you will actually be working toward a degree that is likely to increase your chances of career advancement.
