In addition to Certificates of Advanced Professional Development, CSUN – through the Tseng College – offers a variety of seminars, workshops and test-preparation programs that address specific professional-development and educational-requirement needs.
Like all programs offered through the Tseng College, these programs are taught by expert practitioners in their fields, and classes are scheduled primarily on weekends or evenings to meet the needs of working professionals. While instruction in the following programs takes place on the CSUN campus, most of these programs can also be customized and brought to groups at employer sites on a contract basis.
Open only to current CSUN students, this summer workshop reviews elementary algebraic concepts. Satisfactory completion satisfies the Entry-Level Mathematics (ELM) requirement for admission to mathematics classes that are required for further study in a wide range of fields.
Designed to prepare HR professionals for the PHR/SPHR examination, this nine-session, weekday-evening course may also be taken as training in the field by HR workers who do not plan to sit for the exam.
Every semester, CSUN's Language, Speech and Hearing Center offers seminars on topics of interest to professional speech-language pathologists.
In this one-day course, participants review the U.S. Constitution and its amendments and also take an examination that fulfills the "U.S. Constitution" requirement for Ryan Designated-Subject Credentials. (Note: This exam does not satisfy CSUN's U.S. Constitution requirement for a Bachelor's degree.)
