History

A Longstanding Tradition of Academic Excellence
Bryan College was established in 1940 by Dr. Mildred T. Bryan in central Los Angeles as a stenography school and is one of the oldest such colleges in the United States. Dr. Bryan initially named the institution Bryan Stenotype School, which started as a one-classroom institution with three students. Dr. Bryan was a visionary of her time as her drive to train qualified stenographers pushed the development and advancement of the court reporting industry. Based on Dr. Bryan’s initial vision, the college has grown with a strong core focus on student- and employer-driven principles of excellence, developing a strong brand image in the legal industry.

In 2005, with a new campus in Sacramento, California, Bryan College began the process of introducing new degree programs that would support its brand, maintain its legacy, and continue to support its core student and employer values. These new programs aligned well with Bryan’s mission and legacy as they were, and continue to be, selected based on the simple focus of allowing students to gain marketable skills that result in employment. Bryan College is accredited by ACCSC and is approved by the Department of Education. Some programs are offered online – please inquire to learn more.

Most recently, Bryan College Los Angeles became Bryan University as it received university status offering graduate programs in the fields of Litigation e-Discovery and Health Informatics. Advisory board members and faculty for these programs include highly recognized leading U.S. industry executives and professionals.

Our history dictates that with our focus on students, we’ll continue to excel through education for years to come. We invite you to experience Bryan College today by completing the Request Information Form and one of our friendly admissions advisors will contact you promptly.
