Brandman University, a private, nonprofit university, focuses on providing education for adults through a curriculum model known as iDEAL (Instructional Design for Engaged Adult Learning), which blends traditional classroom instruction with e-learning activities. Brandman University has 25+ campuses throughout California and Washington providing hybrid programs, allowing students to study both online and in the classroom. Brandman University Online provides 100% online programs throughout the nation. In addition to their flexible learning format, Brandman offers year round enrollment to make obtaining a degree as accesible as possible for busy adults.

Brandman University offers a wide range of degree programs, including two associate degrees, more than 30 bachelor’s degree with over 40 concentrations, 20 master’s degrees, two doctoral degrees, and several certificates, courses, credentials, and authorizations. The majority of their programs can be completed entirely online.

Online classes give me the flexibility I need to balance comforting my daughter when her toddler explorations land her on her butt, without missing important milestones or due dates. I can pick up or put down my text book or assignment when I need to change her diaper or refill her sippy and pick it up again without issue when she goes down for a nap or gets utterly absorbed in "Little Baby Bum" songs. They also give me the ability to work at my own pace and complete as many assignments as I competently can in a shorter amount of time than a traditional school setting allows for, which ultimately gives me more time to teach my daughter how to say "please" and "thank you," so long as I remember to check in with the discussion boards once a week.
