- Miramar College opened as a training facility for San Diego's law enforcement personnel and firefighters in 1969. The 125-acre campus has been growing to meet student needs. The past decade has seen the construction of a high-tech computer business center, library, police academy, child development center, digital media lab, online "bullpen," classrooms for SDSU's Higher Education Center at Miramar College, and the first phases of a 32-acre athletic complex, including the largest aquatic complex in San Diego County. A science/technology center and advanced transportation center opened in the Fall of 2004 to provide additional needed facilities. Each semester, about 12,000 individuals of all ages, ethnicities and backgrounds attend Miramar College classes. The associate in arts and the associate in science degrees are earned through the completion of a major, general education and other graduation requirements.
