Since its establishment over four decades ago, Cambridge College has been at the forefront of adult education. With a main campus in Boston, Massachusetts, and four regional locations across the country, we provide high-quality, time-efficient, and affordable higher education to a diverse population of adult learners. A private, nonprofit institution, Cambridge College is accredited by the New England Commission of Higher Education (NECHE, formerly known as NEASC); our various degree and certificate programs enable students to earn the credentials they need to advance in their careers.

Education adapted to you

Cambridge College provides top-notch academic programs during the fall, spring, and summer. Being especially convenient for working adults, most courses are usually taught in the evenings and on weekends, with many blending onsite and online components. There is a diverse faculty of over 450 full- and part-time scholars who practice what they teach.

Each year, we enroll around 3,000 students in our undergraduate, master’s, and doctoral degree programs; as well as certificate and Certificate of Advanced Graduate Studies (CAGS) programs. The best testimony of the quality and value of a Cambridge College education are our more than 30,000 alumni. They are changing the schools they teach and lead, the healthcare and social service agencies they work for, and the communities in which they live and serve – every day, all around the world. Their impact begins with the open doors and accessible opportunities at Cambridge College.
