Golden Gate University's CyberCampus
Golden Gate University's CyberCampus offers courses which could be taken entirely online. The students will be able to earn full degrees and/or professional certificates, update their skills, or accelerate the completion of degree programs without the inconvenience and expense of commuting to class.
CyberCampus also provides online access for traditional in-person courses. These Web-enhanced courses propose students increased communication, storage for course documents and access to supplemental course material.
In the CyberCampus the students will receive a virtual classroom experience that combines academic rigor with flexibility. Courses consist of sound, relevant educational content, and taught by experts who are well-respected working professionals in their fields.
