A world-class education with a foundation in the arts and sciences...
At Baldwin Wallace, tradition and innovation take center stage. We teach you how to think, solve problems, write, and speak with confidence. With more than 80 academic programs—in the sciences, health, performing arts, and more—we ensure you have a rich foundation of portable skills no matter where your career takes you. Our innovative core courses provide a broad base of knowledge that will improve your global understanding and give you the tools you need to take an active role in shaping your future.

...combined with practical real-world experience...
Both in and beyond the classroom, we believe nothing teaches like experience. So we provide varied opportunities both on and off campus. You might work with the clients of our campus speech clinic or learn from an internationally acclaimed composer in a weeklong seminar. You might collaborate with your professor to study the effects of drug use on brain cells or write a business plan for an entrepreneur. You could serve an internship in a TV news department or as an aide to a national political campaign. Baldwin Wallace’s location only 20 minutes from downtown Cleveland provides students
with big opportunities while studying in a beautiful suburban campus environment.

...completed in four years—guaranteed!
BW values your time. If you do your part but don’t graduate in four years, we’ll do our part and pay for your fifth year’s tuition. We believe in affordable excellence. One way to dramatically cut the cost of higher education is for students to earn their degrees in four years.

The best part is you’re prepared for life after BW. Our graduates transition from internships to careers in nearby Cleveland and across the country, taking advantage of networking opportunities along the way. In a post-graduation alumni survey, nine out of 10 BW graduates found rewarding jobs or entered the graduate or professional school of their choice within six months of graduation.

You should be here!
