The purpose of an Advanced Certificate is to enhance an individual’s knowledge in a certain area of study beyond their postgraduate degree. These certificates tend to be geared towards a very specific area of academia.

A Master of Arts or Master of Science degree is a graduate-level course of study that typically requires more rigorous and focused work than an undergraduate degree. Students may pursue this education to deepen their understanding of topics learned in undergraduate school or to train for a specific career field.

Highly successful businesses have shown that strategic business decisions need to be driven by data analyses. The ability to gather information from data is an in-demand skill that is valuable in any industry. This is why data analytics is among the fastest-growing professions today. Data analysis requires more than relying on reports and statistical analysis. It requires a balance of technical skills and analytical abilities to determine clear, actionable business solutions. UC Irvine’s 3-month post-graduate level Accelerated Certificate Program (ACP) in Data Analytics for Business covers a wide array of topics; students will learn the fundamental concepts behind collecting, storing, and analyzing data. Through descriptive, predictive, and prescriptive analytics, students will also learn how to utilize analytic tools and models to reliably forecast trends and behaviors, effectively utilize visualization tools, and create effective strategies. -

The path we walk at the Ziegler School in our study of Jewish sacred texts is both new and old, fresh and well worn. We read writings that centuries of Jews have read, and we read them in dialogue with the generations of scholars – Geonim, Rishonim and Ahronim – who have read them before us. We also read those texts through lenses that have been ground by contemporary scholars in the Universities and Rabbinical seminaries in this country, in Israel, and around the world. The directive of Kohelet guides us: It is best that you grasp the one without letting go of the other, for the one who reveres God will attend to both (Kohelet 7:18). We understand the study of Jewish sacred writings as a spiritual practice. In this we stand in the long tradition ranging from the Talmud through the great centers of learning in Franco-Germany, Spain, North Africa, the Middle East, through the great yeshivot of Eastern Europe and into our own times. “After the Temple was destroyed, God was found in the four cubits of halakhic discussion (Berakhot 8a),” teach the Sages, who also assert “If you would learn to know the One at whose word the world came into being, learn aggadah (Sifrei Devarim, Piska 94).” The intellectual pursuit of subtle distinctions in halakhah, the close readings of Midrash and parshanut, or the joys of philosophical theology is itself a spiritual exercise. The intellectual and the spiritual are one on this path. -

About Geography and Geographic Information Systems (GIS) Geographers study the relationships among places, natural systems, society, and cultural activities and the interdependence of these from the spatial perspective. Geographers today are active in the examination and planning of our communities and the development of our human landscapes along with the study of global warming, deforestation, pollution, and a variety of other environmental quandaries. The Associate in Arts in Geography for Transfer (AA-T) is specifically designed to prepare you for transfer to a CSU geography program at the upper-division level. It may also be appropriate for transfer to other four-year institutions. To accomplish this goal, you will complete transferable lower-division courses in geography and related fields. As a geography major, you will be able to take most or all of your lower-division courses at CCSF before you transfer but should see a counselor confirm your program of study. Additional courses might be required to transfer to particular institutions. The GIS Certificate is for students who for their major or career need to develop in-depth knowledge of the fundamental concepts and practice of Geographic Information Systems (GIS) and learn hands-on problem-solving skills doing real-world GIS application projects. Students will be able to apply this knowledge and hands-on skills to various fields including, but not limited to, planning, engineering, geography, criminology, real estate, biotech, public utilities, transportation, forestry, ecology, resource management, emergency response, business/marketing. Explore Potential Careers Studying Geography and GIS can lead to a variety of different jobs or career paths. Below are just some of the many options you will have.
