Walnut Creek Campus

Higher Education in Walnut Creek

The UMass Global campus (formerly Brandman University) in Walnut Creek, California, was started in 1972 to support educational opportunities for the military personnel and their families on the Alameda Naval Air Station. Walnut Creek is the neighboring community to Oakland/San Francisco, featuring historic buildings, restaurants and shops. Our classes are offered in a blended format which combines the convenience of online classes with the practical application experience that one gets by attending an on-campus course. Most of our classes hold an on-campus session once a week while all other coursework is done online. Students have the benefit of in-person interactions with professors and classmates without interfering with work schedules. 

Questions? Call (800) 746-0082 and speak to an enrollment coach who will guide and support you through program selection, the admissions process, and preparing for a successful start to classes.
