Brandman University Santa Maria, California Campus

Brandman University’s Santa Maria campus
is staffed by faculty full of expertise and determination. Never too late to go
back to school. Our faculty will step in and and really
help that student put things in place that will help them be successful. If you took the time and
energy to apply at Brandman and start with us, that tells
us that you’re committed and you really have a goal of finishing a degree
program and we’re gonna make sure you accomplish that goal. Brandman has had a presence on the
Central Coast for half a century and continues to evolve to meet the needs of
students. For many students the flexible combination of evening an online classes
is key to success. It’s an opportunity for people to further their
education without it inconveniencing their life. The vast majority of these folks are working
during the day and coming to school at night. And our classes are eight weeks
long and I always share with students you can do anything in eight weeks. Among the most popular
degrees at Santa Maria: early childhood education, psychology, and
criminal justice. Plus, this Brandman campus is playing a role in fixing the
California teacher shortage. The online program is exactly what is
needed for the teachers that’s the way the future’s going is through technology. New teachers learn from faculty who are
still working in local schools. I want to deliver something
that they actually want to be excited to go to class from
5:30 to 8:30 I don’t want it to be like [sigh] “We got class tonight.” Because I would want to do that myself. Brandman continues its long tradition of serving military veterans at
the Santa Maria campus. Because of that flexibility even those who are still in the service,
if their job that allows them and has the time, that online component mixed with
the classroom, I think that’s the key factor. John Shade retired from the
Air Force and found Brandman. The military set me up for
that that because there’s things, classes I won’t have to take,
so I’m excited about that down the road and use what I have left
of my GI Bill. We go back to meeting where the
student is coming from and we’re not making you repeat classes that you’ve
already taken if it’s not necessary. With such a diverse student body Brandman’s
faculty are by each student’s side, from enrollment pushing them through to
graduation. The fact that their children get to see
them graduate and what better example than that. You can always make an excuse, we all do.
We can all procrastinate with the best of them, everybody has their things that they
don’t want to do. But if you truly want to educate yourself then there’s nothing that
should stop you, especially with something like Brandman University.
