Becker College is a distinctive small college that has long been recognized for its intimate learning environment and cutting edge educational programs. The College continues to strengthen that legacy, gaining national recognition in emerging programs such as Animal Science, Video Game Design and Nursing.
John Hancock and Samuel Adams signed the College’s founding charter. Notable graduates and students include Eli Whitney (1788), William Morton (1836), and Elliott P. Joslin. In 1887, ECA Becker introduced the typewriter, which was considered an important business innovation of the that time, to business education in Worcester.
Today’s leading-edge programs—game design and development, vet tech and pre-veterinary, nursing, and more—have sprung from a tradition of anticipating and responding to marketplace needs and serving a diverse community of students to better prepare them for personal and professional success and leadership in a global society.
