About

Westwood College isn't your typical institution of higher learning. With our career-focused education, students can earn a bachelor's degree in just three years and some associate degrees in as little as 20 months. Career-focused means students are immersed in career-related courses starting in their first term.* And with day, night and online schedules**, we can accommodate almost any lifestyle.

Based in Denver, Colorado, since 1953, we have 17 campuses across six states, plus our online campus. Our current enrollment exceeds 15,000, while more than 20,000 graduates have already transformed their lives with a Westwood degree.

Our programs empower students to meet the workforce needs in in-demand employment fields. It's a three-pronged success for graduates, employers and Westwood. In fact, a number of businesses actively pursue our graduates specifically for the advantages of career-focused training.

Key to our success is a faculty of working professionals who draw on personal experience and insights to give students a real-life perspective instead of just textbook theories.

*Must meet certain admissions placement requirements.

**Online programs not available in all states, e.g. TX, MA, MN, and IL.
