Gateway brings Sacramento State
closer to Placer students

Sacramento State students who live in Placer County will soon be able to take four classes close to home at the Sierra College Roseville Gateway Center. The new offerings begin this fall.

The classes, offered in conjunction with Sierra College, include Business Finance, Business Communications, Management of Contemporary Organizations and Multicultural America. A recent survey of 4,600 Sacramento State students in Placer County determined that these courses are in high demand.

The Gateway campus is located off Douglas Road with easy access from Interstate 80. Courses provided at the Gateway campus will offer a respite from the heavy commute traffic Placer County students often face coming into Sacramento.

The new classes continue Sacramento State’s efforts to provide higher education opportunities to Placer County residents. The first class of Sacramento State’s MBA for executives program, for example, has been held at PRIDE Industries in Roseville for the past year. The courses, offered Friday evenings and Saturdays to accommodate working professionals, are being taught by professors from the University’s College of Business Administration as well as area executives and professionals. Students complete the coursework for the degree in 15 months.

The Gateway Center is also home to Sacramento State’s College of Continuing Education’s programs for bachelor’s degrees in Organization Communications and Arts and Humanities, as well as upper-division General Education courses. These programs are designed for working adults as well, with classes meeting on Friday evenings and Saturdays. They provide students with the opportunity for career advancement in a variety of fields.

More information on the new courses is available at Media assistance is available by contacting the Sacramento State public affairs office at (916) 278-6156.
