Student & Graduate Reviews

3.42 out of 5.0
Degree: Organizational Leadership
Graduation Year: 2014

Easily accessible and is a good program for the working professional. No real cons.
4.25 out of 5.0
Degree: Organizational Leadership
Graduation Year: 2018

The classmates are greatly engaged in pursuing the educational objectives of the curriculum. The classmates are exceptionally engaged in the coursework. The coursework is surprisingly relevant.
4.17 out of 5.0
Degree: Nursing
Graduation Year: 2019

They have great nurse practitioner programs. Registered Nurses who have BSN degrees can apply for a BSN to DNP program. This is a very good way to achieve your goal to be a nurse practitioner in three years and cost effective as well. You also receive a lot of support from different counselors and faculty members. The only con would be if you don't live close to the campus, which is in Irvine, CA, you have to travel there two to three times a year for immersion sessions.

Degree: Teaching
Graduation Year: 2016

Brandman University offers some the best academic programs that are convenient for graduate students with professional work obligations. The staff is wonderful and easy to work with. Advisors respond quickly to email or phone call requests.
4.5 out of 5.0
Degree: Marriage & Family Therapy
Graduation Year: 2016

I am almost at the end of my program and while it has been challenging and rewarding, the personal growth in conjunction with professional development is my most coveted item of value. The majority of professors are doctoral-level clinicians passing on not only academic knowledge but experiential as well. This is imperative, real-time learning that will be applicable the moment I graduate. I would encourage anyone looking into the social sciences to explore Brandman's Marriage and Family Therapy and Professional Clinical Counseling Programs.
3.5 out of 5.0

Degree: Business
Graduation Year: 2016

I feel the pros of my graduate program consists of meeting new people and learning and applying business concepts to real world situations. The main con would be the price of textbooks.
4.67 out of 5.0
Degree: Elementary Education
Graduation Year: 2013

During my graduate school search, I wrote down the various qualities I preferred in a graduate program. I strived to find a program that provided a wide range of in-class as well as online courses, comprised of professors that are truly passionate for education, and located in close proximity to my home and work. After speaking with several teachers, a colleague recommended Brandman University. I spoke with a representative and was immediately drawn in by the program variety, flexibility for working students, professor selection, and staff availability. Brandman University encompasses each and every attribute I was searching for. A perfect fit. The only issue I have is the tuition. My family and I have saved as much as we could yet it still does not cover all costs. Graduate would be a great resource to help me achieve my dream career as a teacher.
