Becker College is a college in central Massachusetts, United States with campuses in Worcester and Leicester. Becker College traces its history from the union of two Massachusetts educational institutions—one founded in 1784 and the other in 1887. The college offers 27 undergraduate degree programs including a nursing program which is one of the top 20 producers of registered nurses in Massachusetts, a veterinary sciences program and a video game design and development program ranked in the top 10 nationally for the past three years by The Princeton Review. In April 2011, the Commonwealth of Massachusetts designated Becker as the home of the Massachusetts Digital Games Institute (MassDiGI). The college’s enrollment has grown to 1,750 and students have the opportunity to live and study in the urban atmosphere of Worcester or the rural environment of Leicester. Becker College has over 21,000 alumni.
