From New England College

New England College (NEC) is an accredited, private, non-profit college founded in 1946. We have two campuses: our main campus in rural Henniker, NH and our Institute of Art Design in the heart of downtown Manchester, NH.

Today, we serve over 5,000 undergraduate, graduate and online students. We offer more than 60 associate and bachelor’s degree programs, more than 20 master’s degree programs and a doctoral program.

We are stronger than ever and so is our commitment to making higher education accessible for everyone who wants to pursue it: students who are the first in their families to attend college, students who are ready to achieve their full potential, students who are going back to school or charting a new course, students from every background.
