Professional Development Programs

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.
