    The counseling program prepared me for my surprise career in behavioral health by providing me with a strong background and practical experience in counseling techniques and a strong skill set in research and critical thinking—key in building a leadership career.
    Robert P. | M.A. Psychology
    Skills I learned in class come into play every day: being able to relate to people, being able to negotiate and being able to work with people from all walks of life. It really helps you go from one level to the next.
    Melanie D. | Education, Ed.D.
    *Brandman University is now UMass Global
    Compared to a brick and mortar, Brandman* professors are more open and I was able to learn better from them. The online community is what kept me going. I think this is the first time in my life where I can say I am proud of myself.
