Founded in Los Angeles in 1940, Bryan University was one of the first stenography colleges in the U.S. The college’s curriculum helped launch and formalize the modern court reporting industry. Today, BU students can choose from a wide variety of degree programs offered through Bryan University Online or their campuses in L.A., Sacramento, and Toronto. The school also offers certification programs from the campus of the California Flight Academy.
At the Los Angeles campus, students can still enroll in the college’s historic court reporting program. Program instructors are carefully selected to ensure that students can learn from the best court reporters in the country. As old as it is, the program has a modern bent and prides itself in bringing the latest courtroom technology tools into its classrooms.
The Sacramento campus offers a wider array of programs, including associate degrees in Paralegal E-Discovery, Advanced Health and Fitness Training, Advanced Therapeutic Massage, and Health Information Management and Coding. The Toronto campus focuses on education in wellness and beauty occupations. Students may obtain associate degrees in Esthetics and Professional Spa Therapy, Massage Therapy, and Advanced Health and Fitness Training. At the California Flight Academy, aspiring pilots may participate in coursework in instrument rating, commercial flying, multi-engine flying, and airline transport, among others.
For those who prefer or need options for distance learning the university has developed fully online degree and certificate programs. Bryan University online degree options for undergraduates include associate degrees in Court Reporting, Advanced Personal Training and Exercise Science, and Health Information Management and Coding. Online graduate students can earn an E-Discovery Project Management Certificate or a an M.S. in Applied Health Informatics.
Bryan University’s online classes are delivered through real-time coaching environments. Professors use multimedia tools to interact with students during online lectures and labs. These videos and forums also help facilitate collaborative learning between students and make group projects, class discussions and classroom presentations possible online. Students must be available at specific class times in order to participate. Bryan University Online believes the return on this time commitment is worth it. With formal class times, online college students are able to engage more actively in the discussions dominating the industries they’ll soon join.
