Located directly across the Charles River from downtown Boston, Cambridge College has specialized in adult education since its earliest beginnings in 1971. Born out of the Institute of Open Education (IOE), Cambridge College was initiated as a graduate program created by educators Eileen Moran Brown and Joan Goldsmith. Brown became Dean of the IOE in 1979 and through her efforts, Cambridge College became its own institution of higher education. Blending adult education with distance learning, the school now includes satellite campuses in the nearby centers of Merrimack Valley and Springfield along with Georgia, California, Virginia, Tennessee and Puerto Rico.
Cambridge College's stated mission "is to provide academically excellent, time-efficient and cost-effective higher education for a diverse population of working adults for home those opportunities have been limited or denied."
Those living in student housing or an off campus apartment at Cambridge College have access to the school's distinguished academic programs and fields of study. Students may pursue Bachelor of Arts and Bachelor of Science degrees through the undergraduate college. Graduate level degrees are granted through the School of Education, School of Counseling and Psychology and the School of Management.
Student living and university living at Cambridge College are designed to meet the needs of adult learners who maintain full professional and social obligations in addition to continuing academics. Many of the degree programs also blend real world work experience with classroom learning.
