ICT/Digital Media Education Pathways at City College of San Francisco
Certificates and two-year degrees from CCSF
City College of San Francisco (CCSF) is among the oldest and largest community colleges, enrolling about 80,000 students each year and delivering over 4,700 courses at 12 campuses. The College’s programmatic breadth and variety, and its prominence in the city’s ethnic neighborhoods, result in the highest market penetration of any community college in the country.
ICT/DM programs and degrees at CCSF reflect the skills and knowledge in demand and aim to usher students into these well-paying ICT fields. With more than 220 ICT/DM classes, 32 certificates, 10 AS/AA degrees and numerous opportunities to prepare for industry certifications, students and job-seekers have many ICT/DM options to choose from. Five CCSF departments offer ICT/DM related courses, ranging from introductory and entry-level to advanced courses for professionals.
CCSF and San Francisco Unified School District work together to allow high school students to get a jump start on college! The program partners with SFUSD to enroll students participating in career academies in introductory college-level ICT/DM coursework at CCSF during their junior and senior years. The college courses offered to students build on their high school curriculum and allow them to further explore ICT/DM careers while earning high school and college credit at the same time.
