About Us

For over 75 years, UCSB Professional and Continuing Education (PaCE, formerly known as Extension) has helped community members in professional development so they can advance in their careers, switch careers, and achieve professional growth. We do this through continuing education, certificate and degree-related programs. Wherever applicable, our programs are aligned with industry certification bodies and UCSB PaCE is accredited by the Western Association of Schools and Colleges (WASC).
