New England College is a creative and supportive learning community that challenges individuals to transform themselves and their world.
New England College (NEC) is recognized as one of America's "Best Colleges" by U.S. News & World Report. New England College has military benefits that may be available to students who are associated with the U.S. military. New England College emphasizes experiential learning as an essential component in the development of an enduring academic community. Building upon a strong liberal arts foundation, we challenge our students to reach their full potential through informed discourse and the pursuit of excellence in a framework of academic freedom.
History is the exploration of the thoughts, aspirations and achievements of every human life. As historians,
our role is to sift the records of accumulated years through research. As the record of the past grows, we
make sense of it, each of us in our own way, guided as we are by what Carl Becker referred to as ―culture
baggage.‖ As the search progresses, we report our findings in a clear and useful way, sharing the
experience of generations. We pursue this goal, not only in the realm of academia, but in the wider world as
well. The skills to find and make sense of information, and then to communicate the results efficiently and
to effect, are valuable in any field of endeavor and critical to citizens of the new global century.
