Dean's Welcome

For the past 40 years, Extended Education has met the needs of our community, and we are poised to continue to serve our stakeholders with relevant, cutting edge, programming.

The School of Extended Education is Brandman University's rapid response department. We provide a wealth of courses, certifications, certificates and seminars that will keep you current and relevant in your field. When our students need to tackle a new problem, Extended Education will be there with innovative programs to fit their needs.

Building on our heritage of providing applications-based professional development programs for individuals and businesses, we are expanding our offerings of workforce development focused courses and certification programs.  These programs and courses span business, technology, certificates, leadership, corporate training and customized solutions across all subject matter areas.

Innovation is most evident in the School of Extended Education’s role as a partner with our academic schools.  In order to provide prospective students with the ability to “test drive” a degree program, build a bank of academic credits to later be applied toward degree completion, or focus on an emphasis or credential, select Extended Education courses carry academic credit.

Our communities are important to us.  Extended Education is able to respond quickly to community needs.  We want to hear from you and about you.  How can we help you reach your goals?
