Professional Development Training, Short Course

  • Application Deadline
  • Unavailable


We not only create programs that draw from a wide array of content options - including the full range of the University’s fields and disciplines - but also offer great flexibility in formats and delivery modes.

Our format options range from single sessions (e.g., a one-day professional seminar) to a series of sessions scheduled over several weeks or months.

California State University Northridge’s Tseng College specializes in custom-designing professional development, education and training programs like Professional Development Training for international clients.

Our programs can be delivered not only in-person or online but also through blends (“hybrids”) of both modes that offer access from home, work, campus, or at single or multiple sites elsewhere in the United States.

The instructional teams for our programs include both CSUN faculty members, who are recognized for their outstanding teaching abilities and scholarship in their respective disciplines, and accomplished practitioners, authors and scholars with special expertise in their fields, who are drawn from sister universities and other national or international organizations.

We design all of our professional development and training offerings in collaboration with university faculty and recognized experts in the featured subject areas. Further, we tailor all aspects of these programs – from course content and instructional strategies to formats and delivery modes – to meet the specific learning objectives of our clients.
