Online vs. Hybrid Learning

The Brandman University Difference

Regardless of the modality you choose, both online and hybrid classes are developed in the Brandman iDEAL ™ model (Instructional Design for Engaged Adult Learning). As part of the Brandman iDEAL ™ model, learning becomes a living experience with the integration of real-world issues and current events into each class. And unlike traditional college classrooms, you’ll be able to access your virtual classroom any time of the day or night.

Hybrid / Blended

Brandman University offers over 52 degree and certificate programs at 26 campuses and sites throughout California and Washington. Hybrid classes are delivered in a blended learning format, combining face-to-face instruction with independent and collaborative online learning.  You will be on campus once a week in the evening with supplemental interactive coursework in our web-based e-classroom, Blackboard©. Personal student support services including financial aid and academic advisors are available on campus to help you stay on track for graduation.
