Academics at Wentworth
When you join the Wentworth community, you can enjoy the benefits of small class sizes (approximately 20 students) and individual attention from a dedicated teaching faculty with professional industry experience. There are more than two dozen on-campus laboratories and studios, which are an integral component of all majors at Wentworth, creating a hands-on learning environment. Wentworth is also one of the more affordable full-time baccalaureate options in Boston.
Wentworth offers one of the most comprehensive cooperative education (co-op) programs in the United States. For more than 40 years, Wentworth has been opening career doors and helping students gain paid, professional work experience. Before graduation, all students are required to work for two semesters in a paid position directly related to their majors. Co-ops provide valuable, practical experiences that serve students well in their search for employment after graduation. Within six months of graduation, 99% of graduates are employed or in grad school.
Colleges of the Fenway
Wentworth is part of one of Boston’s largest academic collaborations, a consortium representing over 20,000 undergraduate and graduate students, more than 700 full-time faculty, and 2,300 course offerings. Wentworth has partnerships with Emmanuel College, Simmons University, Massachusetts College of Art and Design, and Massachusetts College of Pharmacy and Health Sciences. Students have the ability to cross-register with other colleges, interlibrary loan privileges, and combined extracurricular activities such as intramurals, orchestra, theater, and other social and athletic opportunities.
Wentworth practices rolling admission, which means we review each application once all required materials are received. While there is not an official deadline to apply, some majors and on-campus housing fill up quickly, so we encourage you to apply early.
Applying is easy: simply go to our website at wit.edu/apply and complete the online application. In addition, the following documentation is required: a personal statement or essay, a letter of recommendation from a professor or other professional familiar with your academic abilities, your final official high school transcript, and official college transcripts from any institution of higher learning you have attended. Wentworth does not require SAT or ACT scores as part of an application for admission.
