5 great reasons why

  • Your degree will open doors. The Massachusetts economy projects a shortage of people with a postsecondary education to fill the jobs needed in the next eight years.

  • You won’t be alone, part 1. No matter what your age or situation, you will find likeminded people sharing your classes.
  • You won’t be alone, part 2. Becker offers you advice, guidance, and support as you make your educational journey. Learn about being an adult student in our handy guide here.
  • You won’t pay a lot. Costs for Accelerated Studies classes are affordable, and financial aid is available for those who qualify.
  • You can increase your earning potential and your life satisfaction. Those with a college degree earn almost twice as much as those who don’t. That can be worth almost $1 million!
