If you are considering obtaining a bachelor’s degree, finishing the degree you started, or just taking classes for professional development, Worcester State University offers a variety of programs to help adults accomplish their educational and career goals.
Worcester State University has a long history of serving post-traditional students. Starting as a teaching college in 1874, the university has always recognized and valued the adult student. You are a uniquely gifted group of students who manage to balance work, home and community obligations while bringing your best selves to the classroom. According to recent data, almost a quarter of our undergraduate students are classified as “adult learners”, and our faculty and more traditional students have their experiences enriched because you bring your vast experiences and passion for education to your studies.
Whether those studies lead to a certificate, a highly respected bachelor’s degree or a career-enhancing master’s degree, you will experience a high-quality education here at Worcester State. More than 75% of our evening classes are taught by full-time faculty, including department chairs, tenured faculty and nationally recognized researchers.
Some students are taking classes for personal enrichment while others are pursuing lifelong goals of completing a college degree, or retooling for a career change. Whether you are here for a class or a degree (and beyond), Worcester State is ready to serve you and help you to succeed.
