Walden University was founded in 1970 by two teachers, Bernie and Rita Turner, with the main purpose of creating a student- centered higher education university for adult learners to pursue their degrees while balancing the needs of their work, family, and other personal commitments. Walden’s College of Undergraduate Studies offers a diverse community of adult learners the essential skills, knowledge, and ethical frameworks to earn a bachelor’s degree in order to transform themselves into career professionals.
The College of Undergraduate Studies envisions a premier, innovative undergraduate experience that offers our diverse community of adult learners the essential skills, knowledge, and ethical frameworks to address real-world problems. We strive to produce graduates who value lifelong learning and achieve their personal and professional goals to change your world and the world of those around you.
The College of Undergraduate Studies at Walden University provides a diverse community of adult learners with a baccalaureate education that lays the foundation for lifelong learning. We provide students with the opportunity to change themselves into career professionals, as well as change how our students see the world – and how their world of family, friends, and colleagues sees them.
