2 Professional Development Professionals never stop learning. Your dynamic workplace calls for a fresh outlook and new skills to be the best you can be. We offer courses that add new skills and CEUs to your toolset, or keep your licensure up-todate. Taught by skilled professionals, our programs are scheduled at times that makes sense for working people. Degree Programs We provide degree programs that are relevant and in demand regionally. These programs are a collaboration between SEIE and the greater SSU campus, creating intramural partnerships and additional outlets for faculty to teach subjects that they're passionate about. From the Dean The School of Extended and International Education (SEIE) provides services for people that are non-traditional students pursuing lifelong learning. Our faculty themselves are lifelong learners and continue that pursuit in the classroom. We work to provide programs that are relevant for SSU students, North Bay residents and regional employers. Last year, we served over 10,000 students from our surrounding counties. 2,500 of those were students recieving credit from our Summer and Winter Intersession programs, assisting them in graduating faster. SEIE is a university within a university, and we're constantly growing. We hope to see you soon! Sincerely, Robert Eyler, Ph.D. Dean, School of Extended and International Education Senior International Officer, Sonoma State University
