Anaheim Colleges and Schools

Home to Disneyland, the Angels of Anaheim, the Anaheim Ducks and the original Carl Jr.'s restaurant, Anaheim has often been right at the center of pop culture history. With massive events centers (including the largest convention center on the west coast) and more than a few award-winning restaurants, there is never a shortage of fun to be had in this city of more than 350,000 people.

In addition to the city's cultural opportunities, the impressive number of colleges and universities in Anaheim can make it a great place to earn a degree and launch a career.

Fun Facts about Trade and Technical Schools in Anaheim

Anaheim is filled with possibility for trade and technical students. Small private institutions, such as Brownson Technical School, American Career College and United Education Institute (UEI) offer a handful of programs with small teacher-student ratios and hands-on learning. Though many of the career-based programs are designed to help students to move into the workplace quickly, some of the associate programs are designed as a stepping stone to the bachelor's degree. UEI's medical assistant program is the school's most popular one.
