Daniel Watts
Bachelor of Science in Career and Technical Studies

Daniel Watts had been working in education for years when his teaching career reached a plateau, with some jobs out of reach because he hadn’t finished college. So he decided to go back to school in his 40s and get “that piece of paper,” he says, enrolling in the Bachelor of Science in Career and Technical Studies degree completion program.

Alexandra Strout
Paramedic Program

“I was fortunate in the strength of my instructors,” says Alexandra Strout, who is in the top of her class at Sacramento State’s Paramedic Program. “They’re in the field as firefighters and paramedics, and they’ve been there and done the work. It makes a difference in the knowledge they provide you. It’s one of the strong points of the program.”
