The mission of Berkeley College is to empower students to achieve lifelong success in dynamic careers. This is reflected in the College’s career-focused approach to college education, which spans 85 years. The faculty members at Berkeley College are distinguished by their real-world professional expertise and by their commitment to furthering the lives of students through teaching and learning experiences delivered in the classroom and online.

Students thrive through academics, leadership development, community service, career programs and other extracurricular activities. They also are required to complete internships in their fields of study. Popular degree programs include Justice Studies – Criminal Justice, Management, Fashion Merchandising and Management, Health Services Management, Accounting, General Business, Marketing Communications, International Business, Legal Studies, Graphic Design and Interior Design. Students can also pursue a Master of Business Administration (M.B.A.) degree in Management on site in Woodland Park, NJ, and online.

Counselors in the College’s Career Services Department work with employers to understand their hiring needs and connect students and alumni with internships and job placement opportunities. Graduates benefit from lifetime career assistance.

Berkeley College started in 1931 with an all-female population of 50 students preparing for secretarial careers. Today Berkeley College has more than 50,000 alumni and 8,000 students from nearly 100 countries.

In 2016 the American Conference on Diversity honored Berkeley College for providing an inclusive environment that supports a diverse student population. And for the third consecutive year, U.S. News & World Report named Berkeley College  among the Best Colleges for Online Bachelor’s Programs and among the Best Online Bachelor’s Programs for Veterans.

This fall, the College will launch a Bachelor of Science degree in Nursing for current Licensed Practical Nurses. Beginning in January 2017, a new combined Bachelor of Business Administration and M.B.A. program will allow qualifying students to complete both a Bachelor’s and Master’s degree within four years.
