Welcome from the President

Welcome to Becker College! For more than two centuries, Becker College has been committed to guiding its students through a transformational experience—one that not only provides them with the knowledge and skills they need to be successful, but also helps them uncover their talents and creativity, develops their passions, and provides them with a deeper understanding of the global society in which they live.

On behalf of our faculty and staff, I am pleased to welcome our returning students “back home” as well as our new Class of 2018. The summer has been an exciting and transformational one, and I am pleased to share with you a number of activities undertaken that serve to strengthen the College and enhance your experience.

In July, the College was invited to join two prestigious organizations: the Higher Education Video Game Alliance (The Alliance), and the International Assembly for Collegiate Business Education (IACBE). Becker is one of only 19 charter members invited to the newly formed Alliance, which provides a platform for leading academics to showcase the critical role video game programs play in educating and preparing students for the 21st century workforce. Educational membership in the IACBE is a recognized standard of academic excellence in collegiate business programs and reinforces Becker’s commitment to preparing students to be world ready.

Also in the area of academics, we have strengthened existing programs and launched new ones, including:

  • A B.S. in Community Health and Wellness Education
  • A B.A. in Early Childhood and Youth Education
  • A minor and concentration in Global Citizenship
  • A concentration in Computer Game Production and Management
  • A concentration in Pre-Med/Health Studies
  • A concentration in Pre-Law
  • A concentration in Health and Human Services
  • A concentration in Big Data Analytics
  • A concentration in Counterterrorism Studies
  • A concentration and a certificate in Alcoholism/Drug Abuse Counseling

In addition, we are expanding our academic programs to include graduate education, with work underway for a master’s degree in the area of psychology.

Over the summer, we made significant investments in technology needs and upgrades, and completed renovation projects—big and small—in every residence hall on both campuses.

Each year I hear from students about how much they enjoy our campuses, their professors and classroom experiences, the close-knit family atmosphere, and the many opportunities they are provided with that help them to get involved, make a difference, and grow as individuals. Everyone at Becker College is united in their commitment to provide the best educational and collegiate experience possible so students build the skills, knowledge, and real-world experiences needed to thrive in the global marketplace of today, and tomorrow.
