GOLDEN GATE UNIVERSITY Features

The fourth-​oldest pri­vate uni­ver­sity in Cal­i­for­nia, Golden Gate Uni­ver­sity was offi­cially estab­lished in 1901 as a place where work­ing adults could improve and acquire skills to advance their careers. GGU grew out of the night school of the San Fran­cisco YMCA and, for much of the 20th cen­tury, was the only choice in San Fran­cisco for work­ing men and women to earn an under­grad­u­ate or grad­u­ate degree while shoul­der­ing career and fam­ily vre­spon­si­bil­i­ties. A non­profit, inde­pen­dent uni­ver­sity, Golden Gate serves work­ing adults who want a bet­ter edu­ca­tion, empow­er­ing them to have a suc­cess­ful career and bet­ter qual­ity of life. Our stu­dents are poised to achieve their aspi­ra­tional goals; and through rel­e­vant, effec­tive learn­ing, we help them reach their true potential.

  • Approach: Con­tem­po­rary pro­grams, new tech­nol­ogy and aca­d­e­mic inno­va­tions cou­pled with expe­ri­en­tial class­room learn­ing make the Golden Gate expe­ri­ence espe­cially relevant.
  • Fac­ulty: Classes are taught by an expe­ri­enced group of full-​time fac­ulty as well as a large num­ber of adjunct pro­fes­sors who have cur­rent expe­ri­ence in the fields they teach.
