Dean's Welcome

Welcome to the School of Education at Brandman University!

It is an exciting time for us thanks to a $10 million donation from the Brandman Foundation and high accolades by CTC and NCATE site visit teams. Formerly Chapman University College, Brandman’s School of Education has a longstanding history of producing highly effective teachers, administrators, and counseling professionals across the state of California. In fact, with our large selection of credential and master’s degree programs, strong relationships and partnerships with school districts and colleges across the state, and practitioner-focused faculty with outstanding credentials, Brandman University’s School of Education is proving to be the leader in producing highly regarded educators.

At Brandman, our programs are more than training our graduates to meet state requirements and to maintain the status quo, they are about encouraging transformational leadership in education to lead and reshape education in effort to maximize student learning. Our faculty utilize the latest technologies, teaching strategies, and best practices to produce the most competent educators for the future. If you are an individual who desires to transform education by employing innovative practices and utilizing emerging technologies to maximize learning and effectiveness, Brandman University is the place for you.

We invite you to learn more about our programs and how we are cultivating the educators of tomorrow.
