Brandon University is something special. It is our people, our facilities, our programs and services, our personalized learning environment, and our warm prairie hospitality that set us apart from other universities.
 
Founded in 1899, BU attracts students interested in obtaining an excellent education in an environment geared to the individual. The combination of small classes, faculty who are easily accessible to students, a compact campus, a rural focus, and a diverse student population contribute to a stimulating, supportive, and personalized learning experience.
 
Brandon University offers undergraduate degrees in such areas as Business Administration, Music, Arts, General Studies, Science, Nursing, Psychiatric Nursing, and Education as well as graduate programs in Music, Education, and Rural Development. Brandon University is also home to the innovative Applied Disaster and Emergency Studies program – the only program of its kind in Canada.

The university has a longstanding commitment to First Nations and Aboriginal citizens, and with the First Nations and Aboriginal Counselling degree program, is a recognized leader in the field of Aboriginal studies and education.
 
The Bobcats have a tradition of excellence in interuniversity sport, and the School of Music and affiliated Conservatory are considered among the finest in Canada.
 
Brandon University faculty receives national awards for research in physics, astronomy, geology, mathematics, and social sciences.
 
The university offers a number of distributed learning courses using a variety of technologies including video, audio, and computer-mediated communication. BU is also a co-participant in Campus Manitoba, a distance education program offering university courses in numerous rural Manitoba communities.
 
In an age when university education is orientated towards mass consumerism, utility and specialization, Brandon’s liberal arts curriculum stands out as a refreshing alternative. We deliver rich content but we also teach students how to know, how to apply knowledge as well as how to perform and communicate, innovate, and be critical thinkers.
