Brandon University offers a wide range of degree programs, including Arts, Education, Music, Health Studies, and Science. Spend your first two years at Assiniboine Community College, then transfer to Brandon University in your third year with these four different 2+2 programs. We offer Graduate programs in Education, Music, Psychiatric Nursing, Environmental & Life Sciences, and Rural Development. Take advantage of small class sizes and exceptional student-to-faculty interaction before transferring a different post-secondary institution. They are designed to enhance a student’s degree program or allow local professionals to enhance their knowledge and skills.

Brandon University’s History Department offers courses in social history, gender and women’s history, cultural history, public history, and those in national and world history reflect the increasing diversity of historical studies. Small classes allow students to discuss and debate historical developments and work closely with professors, all of whom are active researchers and writers. The McKee Archives at BU allows students to become historians in their own right, researching and writing history from the original documents.

We promote excellence in teaching, research, creation, and scholarship. We educate our students so that they can make a meaningful difference as engaged citizens and leaders. We defend academic freedom and responsibility. We create and disseminate new knowledge. We embrace cultural diversity and are particularly committed to the education of First Nations, Métis, and Inuit people. We share our expertise and resources with the greater community.

He University is a co-educational, non-denominational, government-supported institution within the Province of Manitoba. It is a member of the Association of Universities and Colleges of Canada (AUCC) and the Association of Commonwealth Universities (ACU). The Baptist Home Mission first sent missionaries to southwestern Manitoba in 1869, and settlers began to arrive in the area after 1871. Both settlers and missionaries soon saw a need for a denominational college for Manitoba youth, and several attempts to found a college was made.

In 1880, Dr. John Crawford and Rev. G. B. Davis opened Prairie College in Rapid City, 20 miles north of Brandon. The College failed, and Rev. Davis founded a small academy in Rapid City that was subsequently taken over by his brother-in-law, Prof. S. J. McKee. McKee’s Academy was moved to Brandon in 1890 following the projection of the CPR mainline through the Assiniboine Valley that resulted in the market growth of Brandon's market.
