Building a “Career Curriculum” at UC Davis

Every UC Davis school and college has an area of expertise. A body of knowledge where they are considered experts. Ours is adult learners — engaging working professionals and preparing them for the ever-changing needs, demands and opportunities of the modern workforce.

By partnering with colleagues across campus and private industry, we create a “Career Curriculum” that reflects the continual need to refresh and reinvent job skills over the steadily growing period between degree attainment and retirement.

Our courses complement the degrees conferred by campus. They are academically rigorous, immediately applicable in the workplace and structured to fit the needs of working professionals.

Partner with Us!

UC Davis Continuing and Professional Education is built on partnership — collaborating with schools and colleges across campus to connect their research, knowledge and resources to working professionals and other “non-traditional” learners. You have the subject-area expertise. We have the experience and infrastructure to reach students you don’t currently serve. By working together, we have a unique, innovative opportunity to advance the larger campus mission.

If you have an idea, we’d love to discuss it.  Contact one of our academic leaders, or Shelene Anglin can direct your inquiry to the appropriate person. Let’s see if we can build something together.
