About Cambridge College

Cambridge College is a national leader in adult higher education that affords working adults opportunities to pursue and achieve their educational and professional goals. Approximately half of the student body is matriculated at the main campus in Boston, while the remaining students are enrolled at regional locations in Massachusetts, California, and Puerto Rico.

Cambridge College was established in 1971 by a small group of educators who sought to provide educational opportunity and advanced degrees for teachers and other working adults. Originally known as the Institute of Open Education at Newton College of the Sacred Heart, the Institute later became part of the Antioch University network. In 1981, the Institute was incorporated into a private, non-profit institution and named Cambridge College. It has since expanded its offerings from an initial Master's of Education degree program, to bachelor's and master's degrees for educators, counselors, managers and human service providers, as well as a doctoral program in education. Cambridge College is accredited by the New England Commission of Higher Education, formerly known as the New England Association of Schools and Colleges, Inc. Commission on Institutions of Higher Education.

Cambridge College's mission is to provide academically excellent, time-efficient and cost-effective higher education for a diverse population of working adults. Its learning environment offers compelling benefits for adult learners that emphasizes teamwork among faculty and students, and a curriculum that balances theory and practice. Classes are primarily scheduled evenings and weekends.

The student body brings a wealth of diversity to the learning environment. The average age is 36, nearly 74% are women, and over 56% are racial and ethnic minorities. Nearly 77% of the students receive financial aid.

Now in its 48th year, Cambridge College is one of the nation's leading institutions of higher education for working adults. It provides access to high quality, affordable education in a responsive learning environment that values students' prior education and life experiences. The College offers graduate and undergraduate degrees at its main campus in Boston, MA and at regional campuses in the United States and Puerto Rico. Nearly 2,500 students are currently enrolled in Cambridge College's four schools: Management, Psychology and Counseling, Education and Undergraduate Studies.

Aggressively positioning itself for growth, the College recently relocated its main campus to a state-of-the-art learning facility in Boston, and will soon begin offering several of its undergraduate and graduate programs 100% online.
