SETTING THE FRAMEWORK FOR SUCCESS

Undergraduate Programs (UGP) faculty provide students with a review of learning theory for adults, self-assessment activities and written self-reflection, to establish personal and professional goals related to the academic program. The department acts as an ambassador to Golden Gate University's culture of professional practice education as well as support services and resources, such as the library and learning support services, advising and career services.
