Brandman among nation's best online programs for teachers

August 30, 2019 by Brandman University

University welcomes working learners from many fields for new fall term


IRVINE, Calif. (Aug. 28, 2019) - The approach of a new fall term means it’s almost time for Brandman University to welcome students back to class, and indeed, going back to school is an essential component of the Brandman University experience.

Brandman University’s first fall session, for students learning in California and Washington classrooms, as well as online, is taught via hybrid, competency-based and fully online instructional modalities, and is scheduled to begin Sept. 3. Many students enroll to earn a bachelor’s degree after having studied at another college, giving a special meaning to the phrase “back to school” in the contexts of their lives.

“Our students are people who have a lot of commitments, to their families, their employers and, in the case of students who are active-duty military, to the entire nation,” Chancellor Gary Brahm said. “Our faculty are committed to helping busy, working adults receive quality educations that will help them achieve their goals.”

Brandman University programs prepare students for more than 90 professions in the new economy, helping those who teach, run businesses and keep their communities safe and healthy as first responders and caregivers remain relevant in their fields and resilient in the marketplace

For example, Brandman University offers one of the nation’s best online programs helping teachers work at the secondary education level. BestColleges rated the university’s Master of Arts in Teaching, Secondary Education with Single-Subject Credential program as the seventh-best online program of its kind in the United States. BestColleges assessed factors related to academic quality and student support, affordability and availability of online courses to produce its Best Online Master’s in Secondary Education rankings.

Brandman University’s commitment to working adults is built upon its more than six decades of service to students who serve in the military. The institution maintains six campuses connected to military bases in the Golden and Evergreen states, and is the only California university to earn a 2019-2020 Military Friendly School Gold rating from VIQTORY.

Brandman University also lets students choose how they want to learn. Brandman University’s MyPath provides a new option for earning a Bachelor’s or Master's degree while working full time. With the Brandman MyPath ™ programs, students are in control of their own schedules and the paces at which courses are completed. And unlike any other type of degree program, students’ prior work experience can assist in their passing courses quickly.

Students opting to take MyPath may enroll in classes leading to an Associates of Arts degree in general business, a Bachelor of Business Administration degree in multiple emphasis areas, a Bachelor of Science degree in information technology or a Master of Arts degree in organizational leadership.


Brandman University is a private, nonprofit institution accredited by the WASC Senior College and University Commission (WSCUC). As part of the Chapman University System, Brandman blends a legacy of academic excellence with innovative curriculum and support services designed for students with busy schedules. The university offers more than 80 undergraduate, graduate, credential and certificate programs across its schools of arts and sciences, business, education, nursing and health.
