Psychology, Education, Business, and Law in San Diego


From the bluffs of Del Mar to the beaches of Coronado, San Diego calls itself America’s finest city for good reason. The area's naval base, scenic coastlines, unbeatable weather, and unique dining experiences are just a few of the factors that drive a significant majority of the approximate 1200 graduate students and 150 undergraduate students to begin their careers and call San Diego home upon graduating. As a noted biotechnological, medical, and military hub, San Diego gives Alliant students a variety of internship and career opportunities to choose from. 

Nestled between the beaches and mountains, the San Diego campus rests on the tree-lined hillside of Scripps Ranch. Conveniently situated just off Interstate-15, you can take a short drive to explore either the beach, downtown, or the mountains.
