UMass Global @ LTCC

UMass Global

In March 2018, LTCC added UMass Global (formerly Brandman University), a private non-profit institution, as a partner in our Lisa Maloff University Center to offer bachelor degrees in Liberal Studies and Applied Studies. These programs prepare students to enter into a multiple subject or special education teaching credential, providing a pathway for local students to achieve both the degree and credential needed to become a teacher.

Rather than focusing on a single academic area, the Applied Studies degree provides a well-rounded learning experience. The Bachelor of Arts in Applied Studies is a degree completion program that is well suited for police officers, EMS workers, firefighters, and other professionals seeking a degree for career advancement.

UMass Global also offers a program leading to a Master of Arts in Education, a valuable credential for teachers looking to advance in their fields, or to move into careers in school administration with.

UMass Global has a liberal transfer policy to help you transfer credits from LTCC and other WASC-accredited institutions. The goal is to prepare you to finish your BA degree in two years or less, so you can move quickly into the teacher credentialing program. 

UMass Global is offering this degree pathway with a scholarship in the form of a tuition discount for all LTCC students and alums. Students can earn this degree for as little as $14,400 and up to $23,000 depending on how many units they earn through LTCC, their eligibility for further financial aid and scholarships, and other factors.
