Even before the pandemic, GGU was pioneering and perfecting remote learning. Since 1998, GGU has been combining market-driven academics with the latest educational technology. That’s nearly 30 years of experience in getting online education right. Golden Gate University offers online education that is accredited by WASC Senior Colleges and Universities Commission. Virtual courses are taught by the same faculty and are held to the same rigorous academic standards as courses offered in traditional classroom settings. We offer undergraduate and graduate degree programs as well as career-advancing certificate programs fully online. Our flexible instructional modes include synchronous (same time/live) and asynchronous (own time/not live) instruction.
We were diving into the subject matter and were pushed to articulate our understanding. I can wholeheartedly say that I feel so much more confident and skillful after this online degree. I wanted a sound and strong foundation and GGU gives you that.
