Why SDSU Global Campus?

From the Office of Continuing Education in the 1950s, to the College of Extended Studies in the 1970s, and now to the SDSU Global Campus of today, tens of thousands of students have benefitted from a range of educational programming designed to meet their personal, academic, and professional goals.

SDSU Global Campus serves as the primary San Diego State University entity responsible for expanding access to SDSU’s programs to learners around the world, no matter where they are located.

That means expanding our on-site, off-site, and online learning opportunities with an emphasis on flexibility, accessibility, and practicality to help these non-traditional learners attain their career and life goals.
