Office of the President

Welcome to Becker College!

Making the decision about where you’ll go to college can sometimes be challenging. You want to find a place where you’ll not only receive the best career preparation, but also a place where you’ll feel supported and welcomed from your first day as a college student to your graduation.

Becker College is that place. We are a career-focused college that provides a supportive and inclusive learning community that will prepare you for your first to last careers.

In today’s world, change is constant. The jobs that exist today may not be the jobs that exist tomorrow. That’s why Becker College is dedicated to future-proofing you. We do this through The Agile Mindset —Becker’s signature initiative that is infused into the curriculum and campus culture. This interdisciplinary experience develops within you an enriched skill set that combines knowledge with the ability to think critically and creatively, and then apply what you learn to much broader contexts. This not only gives you a competitive edge in the job market, but will help you to navigate your future.

In addition to a curriculum that blends skills and knowledge with the ability and agility to be innovative, creative, and adaptive, the College provides a number of on-campus clinics, institutes, and centers that give students real-world experience.

  • The Massachusetts Digital Games Institute (MassDiGI)—a first-in-the-nation, statewide center that creates opportunities for industry-leading design companies to work with faculty and students on game development projects and curriculum enhancements. Its Summer Innovation Program attracts students from around the globe, who collaborate on developing and launching games for entertainment, education, and more.
  • The Lenfest Animal Clinic, a fully operational veterinary clinic that is open to the public, sees more than 1,000 patients annually and provides students with hands-on experience.
  • The John J. Dorsey, Sr., Crime Scene Lab uses state-of-the-art photography equipment as well as crime scene sketching, evidence collection and analysis, and mapping techniques.
  • An on-campus mental health clinic, open to the public, provides a supervised setting for students in the Master’s in Mental Health Counseling program to gain clinical experience.
  • A first-in-the-nation, officially sanctioned Yunus Social Business Centre @ Becker College, identifies real-world social problems and creates innovative, self-sustaining solutions to transform lives and communities.
  • The state-of-the-art, Colleen C. Barrett Center, dedicated to academics, which features an augmented reality/virtual reality lab, live game studio, esports club space, and more.

Becker provides you with a small, active, close-knit community where you can easily make friends. Our small class sizes ensure that you’ll receive personal attention from your professors.

I encourage you to learn more about Becker. Tour our campuses and see why Becker has earned such recognitions as “Best College” (The Princeton Review), College of Distinction, and #4 in the world ranking of our game design program (The Princeton Review). With a 90% placement rate for employment or further study, Becker is the right choice for your personal and professional success!
