Whidbey Island NAS Campus
Higher Education in Whidbey Island
UMass Global's Whidbey Island Naval Air Station campus (formerly Brandman University) is located in beautiful Oak Harbor, Washington. As the largest island in Washington, most residents live in a rural setting. The Whidbey Island campus has offered college degree programs for active military personnel, veterans and their families since 1974. 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.
