If you're an international student or working professional with an undergraduate degree, our Evening Certificate Programs can help enhance your skills and credentials.

These certificates offer a specialization in a specific field—in business, art, design or behavioral health sciences—and practical skills that you can apply immediately.

Our certificates offer as much academic rigor as a graduate program but can be completed in less time. In addition, certificates allow you to focus on topics most relevant to your career and avoid the extra coursework required for graduate degrees. Most of our certificates can be completed within one year.

Courses are offered in evenings and on weekends in locations in San Francisco and Berkeley, communities very close to Silicon Valley's creativity and innovation. Take courses and network with U.S. professionals, and immerse yourself in California culture.

Complete undergraduate prerequisites or become a more competitive candidate for graduate or professional school in counseling and psychology.

Career and self-fulfillment opportunities are rewarding and plentiful in the health and helping professions: counseling, psychotherapy, social work, clinical psychology, psychiatric nursing and health education. The Preparatory Program for Counseling and Psychology Professions is ideal if you are a career changer who needs to complete undergraduate course prerequisites or if you want to gain a deeper understanding of the counseling and psychology field. The curriculum comprises a range of upper-division psychology courses that are required or strongly recommended for professional or graduate school admission and for careers in social work, counseling and psychology.
