UCLA Extension certificate programs address the needs for professional advancement, career transition, practical skills training and the personal development of the individual student; and address the high-level training needs of various arts, service and manufacturing industries important to the local economy. These programs help define the character and standing of continuing higher education within the university community as well as the communities we serve at home and abroad. All programs are characterized by a balance of theory and practice appropriate to the discipline.
