Classes that fit your busy schedule.

We always have our students’ best interests in mind. That’s why we have created a class schedule that complements your busy life as a working professional.

All classes are held at the Saint Mary’s College of California campus in Moraga, in the evenings and on Saturdays. Students can take classes part-time or full-time—whatever works best for you.

What’s more, all incoming students are assigned an academic advisor to help guide you through the challenging, rewarding program.
