Best colleges in Sacramento

The Golden Capital

Sactown can help you get your diploma in the bag

Picture ocean breezes and sunsets on the horizon. Then wake up, because Sacramento isn't on the coast. Compared to its neighboring cities, one would think there's nothing to do in River City. But this part of Northern California is home to several accredited higher education institutions and one of the strongest community college systems in the state. The city's 28 higher educational institutions include 10 community colleges and one true public 4-year university with more than 60 programs. With the number of degrees constantly rising, it's no surprise that nearly 40% of the Sacramento region has an associate's degree or higher. and though the career focus is primarily dominated by Government jobs, education, and health services, there are other career options available in advanced manufacturing, biotechnology, information technology and agriculture.
