An undergraduate program is what you complete to earn your bachelor’s degree. Graduate degrees represent both master's and doctoral-level degrees.

SFBU Offers English as a Second Language
San Francisco Bay University is proud to offer an Intensive English Learning program. Students from all over the world come to California for a high-quality education. Some of these individuals are motivated and ready, but may lack a complete fluency in the English language. The SFBU Intensive English Program (IEP) is designed for these prospective students. We understand that English fluency enhances the learning experience and makes attending a university in Northern California just a little easier. The IEP helps these students develop the skills, fluency, and confidence they need to communicate and learn effectively in English.
IEP students can also expect to improve their written English and expand their vocabulary. The IEP teachers at SFBU are adept at helping students not just read, write, and pronounce, but fundamentally improve their understanding of grammar. IEP graduates find it easier to socialize and meet others and network with greater confidence.
In the end, whether you choose a bachelor’s degree, master’s degree, or the Intensive English Program at SFBU, counselors, staff, faculty, and current students are all here to help. Making the choice to attend a university in the United States necessitates much thought and consideration. Still not sure? Don’t worry, we have a few more tips for you.
How Should You Choose Your SFBU Program?
A 2019 study found that 51% of students were not confident in their career path when they enrolled in college. Statistics like these don’t make choosing your university program any easier.
There is a reason why attending a college or university is such a high-pressure decision. This is your career we’re talking about. This is about the rest of your life. It is no small matter and certainly requires a lot of thought and consideration. What you major in; what program you study – these decisions are not to be taken lightly.
That’s why the first and best thing you can do is study your interests. Ask yourself this simple question: “What interests me?” Because your interests are one of the biggest factors when considering a university program. And studying subjects that interest you makes university life a lot easier and more enjoyable.
Location is another important consideration. Are you considering a university program in Northern California? Certainly, this is an appealing environment, and where you are shapes what interests you. Think about choosing a university in a location with close proximity to companies where you might want to work upon graduation. San Francisco Bay University’s Silicon Valley location is very advantageous to students looking to land a job with one of the nearby tech companies.
It doesn’t hurt to talk to friends, family, or even faculty. Don’t hesitate to reach out with questions about your career and SFBU program choices. We’re here waiting to provide you with a first-class education.
