A Christian College of the Liberal Arts & Sciences

About Us

Houghton College Adult Education offers a Bachelor of Science or Bachelor of Business Administration degree in a fast and convenient format for busy adults. Established at Houghton College's West Seneca campus in 1991, this program allows adults with some prior college credits to complete their bachelor's degree quickly, comfortably and conveniently in as little as 17 months. The program has since expanded to locations all over Western New York.

There are now three cohorts per year at the West Seneca campus and one cohort each year in Lockport. 

Founded as Houghton Wesleyan Methodist Seminary in 1883, what is now known as Houghton College has been providing undergraduate education for almost 100 years.

Houghton College is a nationally recognized liberal arts institution, ranked by U.S. News & World Report as one of the nation's best in their 2013 America's Best Colleges.
