Berkeley College has been preparing students for successful careers since 1931. Times have changed, but our “students first” commitment hasn’t. Everything we do is designed to help students achieve professional and personal success. Berkeley College offers career-focused programs, supportive professors with real-world industry knowledge, hands-on learning through our internship program, and a variety of supplemental programs and activities.
Berkeley offers a range of degree and certificate programs to help prepare students for some of today’s most in-demand careers. Programs are developed with input from industry experts to prepare students for the professional world. Updates give students the current skills that employers require, and programs are added to reflect the professional marketplace. Programs are offered through the Larry L. Luing School of Business, the School of Professional Studies, the School of Health Studies, and the School of Graduate Studies. Undergraduate curricula are supported by the School of Liberal Arts to ensure a well-rounded education.
Berkeley College has a rolling admissions process that is fast and easy, and help is available every step of the way. Acceptance decisions are based on more than just past performance in school—we consider potential for success as well. An Admissions advisor will help you choose a program of study, arrange a tour of the Berkeley facilities, and answer all of your questions.
Berkeley College has campuses in New York, New Jersey, and online. While each Berkeley location has the facilities and resources to provide you with an outstanding career-focused education, each has its own “personality.” Whether you choose to study in the city, the suburbs, or online, you’ll have access to everything you’ll need. Many students choose to take classes at more than one campus or combine on-site and online classes to complete their degree.

Instructors are chosen for both academic excellence and relevant professional experience. They share firsthand occupational knowledge that can help prepare students to enter the job market. Portfolios, internships, and capstone projects are completed prior to graduation, as students work closely with the Career Services Department to secure future employment.
Students have the opportunity to interact with Interior Design and Design Management students, exhibit their work in the Gallery at Woodland Park, and contribute to the department website.
