About Bay State
In a city full of colleges and universities, one school has been Boston’s best-kept secret for more than 65 years. In that time, Bay State College has built a reputation for offering a unique, high-quality curriculum for the serious student. Thanks to our small classes, individualized attention, and a faculty of industry professionals who bring their experience into the classroom, our students are successfully able to pursue career-focused studies in today’s fastest-growing industries.
In our commitment to their academic and professional advancement, our students are given the opportunity to intern at some of the best companies in the nation, while networking with employers and alumni who can open doors to some of the Northeast’s best career opportunities.
At the same time, our students work and live at our campus in historic Back Bay, one of Boston’s most desirable neighborhoods in the city, near the center of Boston’s lively downtown and all it offers.
