Get Your Hands Dirty
Inside the walls of our university you will find dynamic classes with creative students and faculty ready to work hand-in-hand. Get your hands dirty from day one. Pick up a camera, put on your lab coat, or begin your first novel. Chapman allows you the opportunity to work alongside your professors from the beginning.
World-Class Faculty Who Know Your Name
Our faculty graduated from the same prestigious schools as their colleagues at other world-class universities. They do the same caliber of research. They speak at the same international conferences. They get interviewed on national television, write textbooks, and garner national awards. The only difference from their colleagues is that our faculty know their students by name.
The Chapman Family
Being connected with a dedicated, resourceful, and innovative network is one of the most important aspects of attending a university. Chapman cultivates an environment of family, so when you're in the "real world" a friend is just around the corner. Panther Pride is with you for a lifetime.
We invite the inciters of change and disrupters of the ordinary to start their journey to mastery.
One Chapman Family. Many #ChapmanStories.
