    School Overview

    During the Great Depression, women attended Berkeley College, in New York City, to learn vital executive secretarial skills. First established by Alyea M. Brick in 1931, Berkeley added a two-year secretarial program awarding college credit and then opened a second campus in 1936. With the introductions of computers and new technologies, Berkeley College expanded horizons, adding additional campus locations, increasing the number of academic programs, and admitting male students by 1977. Today, the private, for-profit Berkeley College maintains three campus locations in New York and six locations in New Jersey in addition to Berkeley College Online. Students can pursue associate’s and bachelor’s degrees, along with certificate programs.

    Berkeley College Online offers degree programs for non-traditional students and students requiring added flexibility. Courses are delivered asynchronous, and students complete weekly assignments at their pace and have access to coursework 24/7. Typical online classes include reading and writing assignments, in addition to discussion boards and possible online group projects.
