Educating Strong Women since 1897
At Bay Path, classroom learning and real life experience combine for a meaningful education. From our founding more than 100 years ago, we have emphasized a career-focused curriculum that prepares people to become professionals and leaders in their field. Our innovative programs for undergraduate women, as well as our Degree Program for Adult Women, and graduate programs for men and women have made us a pioneer among peers — just like the students we send out into the world.
Fast Facts: We know how to educate women.
Since 1999, over 2500 adult women have graduated from the One-Day-A-Week Saturday program.
After receiving their bachelor’s degrees, over 20% of our adult women go on to further their education in graduate programs.
Bay Path was the first college to establish a criminal justice program only for women in the state of Massachusetts.
The annual Women’s Leadership Conference, the largest in western New England , launched by Bay Path in 1996 and has brought to the area outstanding leaders in politics, arts and business such as former Senator Elizabeth Dole, NBC news correspondent Andrea Mitchell, Queen Latifah, Maya Angelou, Jane Fonda, Rita Moreno, and former U.S. Secretary of State Madeleine Albright.
Purposeful leadership. Global, multi-cultural perspectives. Social awareness. Confidence and conviction. These are just some of the words that describe the unique Women as Empowered Learners and Leaders (WELL) program that helps women take ownership of your life and change how you will see the world. Students take part in a shared learning and community experience that weaves together WELL courses, College events, community service, career preparation, and leadership skills.
