      Former Dean College defensive end, Albert Presley (#8 pictured in red) has been signed for the Jacksonville Jaguars mini-camp. Albert speaks highly of his time spent at Dean, stating, "I have accomplished many different things as a player, but if I had to pick one thing I would have to say being named all-conference and winning a national bowl game while attending Dean College. I know it’s not a SEC championship or a Rose bowl, but we made history. We were the first team to go all the way and actually come home with the hardware, so I felt blessed and honored to be a part in that.” Click here to read Albert’s interview.

      Dean College Holds 148th Commencement Saturday, May 10, 2014

      05/10/2014

      Dean College held its 148th Commencement exercises on Saturday, May 10, 2014 at the Dean College campus in Franklin, MA. A total of 285 individuals received their degrees, with a large number of family and friends in attendance.

      The keynote address was provided by Dean College President, Dr. Paula M. Rooney, who told students not to concentrate on the finish line because “it is the journey that matters.” Dr. Rooney encouraged students to “use a solid foundation of knowledge, sense of curiosity and opportunity to achieve your very best.”

      Additional remarks were provided by Joseph C. Maher, Jr., Esq., Co-Vice Chairman of the Dean College Board of Trustees, along with two graduating students, Caleb Dolman from Manchester, NH and Hanna Anderson from Bridgewater, MA. 

      Caleb Dolman earned his Associate Degree in Sport/Fitness Studies with a concentration in Physical Education. Caleb began his speech by quoting Mahatma Gandhi who said, “Be the change that you wish to see in the world.” Caleb told students that “change is not easy – it is tedious but necessary…if it were easy there would be no accomplishments.”

      Hanna Anderson received her Bachelor’s Degree in Liberal Arts and Studies with a concentration in Psychology.  Hanna quoted Maya Angelou, who said, “I've learned that people will forget what you said, people will forget what you did, but people will never forget how you made them feel.” She told students “As you walk across the stage today, remember to thank the people that have helped you along the way.” She encouraged students to realize that the possibilities in life are endless. “Each of you is now sitting here because you did not settle. You did this.”

      Dean College Approved to Offer B.A. Degrees in English, History, Psychology & Sociology

      04/30/2014

      Dean College has been approved by the Massachusetts Board of Higher Education to offer stand-alone B.A. degrees. Beginning in fall 2014, students at Dean College will be able to complete a Bachelor of Arts in English, a Bachelor of Arts in History, a Bachelor of Arts in Psychology or a Bachelor of Arts in Sociology. These degree programs will take the place of concentrations in English, History, Psychology and Sociology under the umbrella of the B.A. in Liberal Arts and Studies. The Bachelor of Arts in Liberal Arts and Studies will remain, and students pursuing that degree will be able to design their own major with the approval of the Dean of the School of Liberal Arts and Sciences.

      These new B.A. programs, along with the LAS bachelor’s degree, prepare students for the world of work or graduate school.  “Today’s employers are seeking college graduates who have the knowledge and skills that liberal arts degrees provide; inquiry and analysis, critical and creative thinking, written and oral communication, quantitative and information literacy, teamwork and problem solving,” said Dr. Linda Ragosta, Vice President of Academic Affairs.

      Dean College now proudly offers 9 Bachelor Degree programs, including Arts and Entertainment Management, Business, Dance, English, History, Liberal Arts and Studies, Psychology, Sociology or Theatre. Additionally, Dean College offers 17 Associate Degree programs, as well as a robust schedule of part-time continuing and professional education credit and certificate programs throughout the calendar year.
