Until recently, Lincoln College of New England was best known as Briarwood College to many in Southington, Connecticut. Founded in 1966, Briarwood began as the all girls Briarwood Secretarial School. In 1979, the renamed Briarwood College transitioned to a coeducational campus and expanded its degree programs, along with its physical campus. In 2008, the Lincoln Educational Services Corporation acquired Briarwood College and Clemens College, consolidating them into the Lincoln College of New England. Today, the Lincoln College of New England has two campus locations in Connecticut, in addition to a virtual campus.
Lincoln College of New England offers students the opportunities to choose from online programs and blended programs. Online programs are delivered fully online while blended programs target working professionals and are a combination of online courses and on-campus courses taught at the Hartford, Connecticut campus. Classes for online programs are taught asynchronously, and include lectures, videos, simulations, discussion boards, and assignments.
