In the coming months, Endicott College plans to take major steps to broaden its educational footprint in the region.
In June, the Beverly college will open its first satellite campus on the North Shore in Gloucester,and come September, Endicott will launch a teacher training program that will help Haverhill educators to earn master’s degrees close to their classrooms.
“We feel it’s most appropriate to go on site and provide education in a comfortable and meaningful environment,” said Endicott College president Richard E. Wylie.
Beginning next month, Endicott will rent 4,000 square feet of space in an oceanfront office building next to a proposed hotel in downtown Gloucester. The college will create classrooms, laboratories, and office space for local residents who want to earn an undergraduate degree. Undergraduate classes will include marine sciences, biotechnology, hospital management, arts, and a program that will allow working professionals to receive life experience credit toward their degrees.
