Professional Certificates

Certificate Programs

Certificate programs are a key educational offering from SDSU. Thousands of people have benefited from completing an SDSU certificate program, and these programs continue to be one of the core competencies of Our School and College.

Certificates are recognized by most employers as a significant academic accomplishment, and can lead to new jobs as well as promotions for those who obtain them. They are also typically more relevant and focused for today’s workforce than academic degrees and can be completed in a much shorter period of time.

The Learning Design and Technology (LDT) program also offers two stateside certificate programs, both fully online. Students should apply to the university using Cal State Apply and register for courses through main campus. Cost of tuition can be found on the Cashier's Office website and will depend on how many units are taken, and a student’s status as a resident or non-resident:

LDT has partnered with SDSU’s Global Campus to offer several professional certificates. The New Technologies for Teaching and Learning Certificate, for which an application for admission is not required, is now open for enrollment. For more information, please visit:
