As one of the nation’s oldest, largest and most comprehensive continuing and professional studies providers, UCLA Extension gives you a wide range of options to advance in your career, switch careers, or achieve personal growth.

The UCLA Difference

Our goal is to prepare students to thrive in today’s ever-changing professional landscape by offering an exceptional and convenient learning experience.

Coursework developed by industry experts balances theory and real-world practice, allowing you to transform your career in less time than many traditional postgraduate degrees.

Receive the resources and support needed to succeed, along with the convenience of evening and weekend courses with locations throughout Los Angeles in Westwood, DTLA, and Woodland Hills. And should you wear weary of the commute, many of our in-person certificate programs regularly offer online or hybrid course options.

Once a Bruin, Always a Bruin

Certificate students enjoy exclusive UCLA benefits that include workshops, networking events, career advising and job search resources. Graduates receive access to the UCLA Alumni Association.
