Coachella Valley Campus
In the heart of Palm Desert, Brandman’s Coachella Valley Campus is conveniently located adjacent to Palm Desert High School in the Berger Foundation Building and has been serving working students for over 37 years! Brandman classes are taught using a blend of on-campus and online instruction. Once a week, you will meet with your classmates and instructor for valuable face-to-face class time. During the rest of the week, you will be engaged in the course via some form of online assignment and/or group work to discuss assigned material and collaborate with your peers.
