Brandman University was established by Chapman University – a private institution in Orange, California founded in 1861 which consistently ranks among the country’s top universities. Formerly named Chapman University College, Brandman’s original purpose was delivering high-quality education to the El Toro Marine Corps Air Station.
Now a separate university, Brandman remains military-friendly but has expanded its programs to include the adult learner and serves a large and diverse student population. To best serve our students, we have even offered education online for over two decades. We are as proud of our rich academic past as we are of our technology-driven future.
