About Us

Becker College is one of the 25 oldest institutions in the U.S., tracing its history from the union of two Massachusetts educational institutions—one founded in 1784 with a charter signed by American Revolutionaries John Hancock and Samuel Adams, and the other in 1887. Today the College’s nearly 1,700 students live and learn on the College’s two distinctively New England campuses, located six miles apart, in the heart of Massachusetts.
