Student & Graduate Reviews

Degree: Psychology
Graduation Year: 2014

The graduate program that I am in is very competitive. There are many core values that each student is learning about themselves. Also, the type of information that we learn in each given quarter is very helpful. Each instructor is very informative.

Degree: Psychology
Graduation Year: 2016

I just got accepted for the May 2013 term for the MA Counseling Psychology/MFT program. I am a single mother of two, one child who is Autistic. In addition I work full-time for a government agency. Brandman University has a flexible program that will work around my home and current career position. I found the staff to be knowledgeable, friendly and supportive. I would highly recommend this university to anyone.

Degree: Teaching
Graduation Year: 2013

I love that you have so many cities to pick for classes. I also love that the staff is so knowledgeable and easy to access. Downside is that it is expensive.

Degree: Marriage & Family Therapy
Graduation Year: 2014

Brandman has a lot of bugs to work out - but they have the only MFT program in the Santa Cruz/Monterey Bay area. Tuition is on the lower side (for a private school), and class schedules are designed to be compatible with working people. Instructors are working professionals with Psy D.'s or PhD.'s.

Degree: Business

The support team is good but the One Stop group for financial aid is very hard to get a hold of

Degree: Marriage & Family Therapy
Graduation Year: 2014

I am very happy to have chosen Brandman for their Marriage & Family Therapy program. They are very helpful, the insturctors are intelligent, they keep their lectures interesting, and provide the tools we need to become a good therapist. They make sure that all MFT students are prepared before they send them out to start their practicum. It's a good program and is more affordable than other MFT programs in the San Diego, CA area.

Experienced and helpful staff, challenging, rewarding, and a positive environment. Some assignments felt like a waste of time but overall they helped me become more knowledgeable.

Degree: Education
Graduation Year: 2014

I believe that the graduate programs offered at my school are very well balanced and have been modified over the years in order to best suit the needs of the students. The school participates in a Blended format, which I really appreciated when working on my first Masters degree in Teaching in 2010-2011. It made the program very easy to follow and participate in. I am currently pursuing a second Masters degree in Early Childhood Education in Leadership. I am really looking forward to beginning the program with this university.

The graduate program is excellent. The professionalism of the staff and faculty is fantastic. The understanding of that many students are working adults makes for a comfortable environment.
