Brandman University | Chapman University SystemTwenty-two Saylor Academy courses in business and computer science can be worth credit for students of Brandman University, a non-profit with campuses in California and Washington, as well as online.

Students work through self-paced material and take a proctored exam online whenever they are ready. The result is a degree program that can more easily fit a student’s timeline and finances.

This program is a great opportunity for current students of Brandman and an outstanding opportunity for anyone who wants to hit the ground running with a new business or CS degree.

The usual caveats apply, of course, and you can find out more information right here.

    1. Lol I feel the same way. Though, I wish Saylor would stop emphasizing heavily on Business Administration and Computer Science. Their are still general education courses you have to take, you know? If I could take those on here, for Brandman, I’d be VERY happy!

      1. Speaking, personally, as a history major in a life-long love affair with the liberal arts and with little business sense (other than fantastic ideas for any number of destined-to-fail-in-style startups), I also wish I would stop talking so much about Business and CS. Actually, I like the CS part, so maybe just business? Nevertheless, here we are.

        In 2010-2011, a whopping 21% of all bachelor’s degrees were in business. As for CS, maybe that is to our time what Statistics was a century ago (social science counts! Literally!) — this heady, delirious sense that the world around us in ever-more intimately comprehensible and manipulable and susceptible to creative hacking. CS, then, is a kind of Particle Physics and Cosmology and high theology for the rest of us, perhaps.

        These two streams seem to constitute much of what those seeking new degrees, degree completion, and career shifts are looking for. Nevertheless, I do sympathize, and we remain watchful of the educational zeitgeist and mindful that the bandwagon is not necessarily where we would want to be. Our hope is that higher ed institutions continue to pick up on these kinds of opportunities, and when an institution comes looking for Humanities, we will have a great excuse to build along other lines.

        1. I think CS is more like the fascination with the internal combustion engine or the radio that occurred in the early 20th century. Every kid had to know how to fix both. So, I get the emphasis. Not bad, but you have to hold onto your hat and watch for trends.

          Statistics and Physics are still sciences

      1. Notwithstanding the views of Rodgers and Hammerstein on the general goodness of the beginning as a place to start, we do seem to do things in reverse order from time to time.

  1. What’s the cost of this opportunity? It’s completely useless if it isn’t affordable. Brandman better be willing to slash their outragous cost of tuition if it’s going to succeed. Otherwise, the hell with this university, Patten University is much cheaper.

    1. Just small steps toward new paradigms of getting — and paying for — higher education! This program is definitely for someone who is already attending Brandman or planning to do so; the courses can be put toward electives and perhaps some core courses that will fill in the gaps on the way to a degree. The literal cost of the opportunity is about $25 per course exam, or $8.33 per credit. For an enrolled student who is staring down the barrel of a ninth semester to graduate (or who would prefer to shoot for seven), the savings could be considerable.

      Consider this, if not an opportunity geared to all, then an example of what traditional universities can do to meet students part-way.

      More work to be done? Absolutely!
