About Extended Learning
The College of Extended Learning at San Francisco State University offers a wide variety of continuing adult education courses and programs to prepare you for career advancement, career change, or personal growth. We offer nationally-acclaimed curricula and faculty; weekend, evening, and online courses; plus access to thousands of transferable degree-credit university classes.
Extended Learning students are degree-seeking SF State students, working professionals, students who have completed their formal education, students wanting to take a program that is not offered as a degree (such as our internationally recognized Multimedia Studies Program), and the general public. The College offers academic units, continuing education units, online classes, and non-credit courses.
Extended Learning has no permanent faculty but instead relies on a combination of campus faculty and expert practitioners from the community. Because we can offer programs to meet the demands of the marketplace, we have the capacity to create and deliver opportunities for learning that are high quality, reasonably priced, and accessible to a broad segment of the larger community.
Extended Learning publishes and distributes three catalogs a year, for fall, spring, and summer. We also produce a schedule of short, winter session classes. Sign up here to receive a free catalog.
