Bay Area BlendEd Consortium

BlendEd Map


Through the Bay Area BlendEd Consortium, you will have access to unique courses that take advantage of the resources of the Bay Area and have the opportunity to learn with students from other Bay Area schools. BlendEd courses cover topics like Social Psychology, Bay Area Cinema & Filmmaking, Gender Studies, and Applied Al in Python and take place both online and in-person. BlendEd courses combine both interactive and individual work. 

All BlendEd courses are UC approved, and students are strongly encouraged to consider taking a BlendEd course during their time at Branson. All BlendEd courses are electives that students may take in addition to meeting their graduation requirements.
