Baldwin Wallace University (BW) is a private comprehensive university located in Berea, Ohio (20 minutes from Cleveland) that offers bachelors, masters, and professional degrees. More than 80 academic majors are available to undergraduates, including pre-professional and dual-degree options. There are graduate programs in education, physician assistant, speech-language pathology, business, and public health.

The BW curriculum is built around the belief that an academic foundation in the arts and sciences and real-world experience will prepare students for lifelong learning and accelerate their career growth. Transformational learning prepares students to meet any personal challenge and to be a contributing member of our global community.

Our professors have real-world experience that is international in scope. Some of BW's most popular and renowned majors include psychology, business, music, engineering, computer science, and neuroscience.

Tradition and Innovation

When founded in 1845, Baldwin Wallace University was one of the first colleges in Ohio to admit students without regard to race or gender. That spirit of inclusiveness has flourished and evolved into a personalized approach to education: one that stresses individual growth as students learn, respond to new ideas, and collaborate with others while exploring new concepts and situations. 


Baldwin Wallace University is regularly named as one of the Midwest’s Best Universities by Princeton Review. Educate to Career, Inc. has ranked Baldwin Wallace University best in Ohio on a list recognizing college value and return on investment.  For more than 20 years U.S. News & World Report has ranked Baldwin Wallace University as one of the top universities in the Midwest region of the United States. 

Scholarships for International Students

All degree-seeking international students are considered for the John Baldwin Scholarship, a merit award of up to $15,000USD per academic year. International students must also submit the International Certification of Financial Support form to demonstrate sufficient financial resources for one year of study, which is necessary to secure a visa.

The expectation is that each student’s tuition, housing, meals, books, transportation, insurance, and living expenses will be covered for the duration of study. A certified or notarized letter from the sponsor’s bank or a scholarship letter from the student’s government should accompany the documentation.

ESL Opportunities

Baldwin Wallace has partnered with the LADO International Institute to provide ESL programs for international students who are prepared academically but whose English skills need to be improved to meet BW's English language proficiency requirements. LADO students will receive a conditional acceptance to study at BW upon the successful completion of the LADO ESL program.


In addition to BW's strong arts and sciences programs, there are dual-degree 3/2 engineering programs with Case Western Reserve University. Students can also obtain unique undergraduate and graduate degrees in Computer Science/MBA and more.

Another hallmark of a BW education is experiential learning. Students gain real-world experience through study abroad, field experience, and research opportunities that prepare them for graduate school and career success after they complete their degree. A number of multinational companies are located nearby, allowing BW students to intern at Sherwin Williams, Goodyear, Cleveland Clinic, Hyland Software, NASA and Nestle.

Our Career Services Office will assist students with locating an internship. For study abroad, BW students can participate in full-semester or summer-only programs in India, Japan, Germany and Australia, as well as within the U.S. in New York City.

Varied service-learning projects are available for students who would like to give back to the community. At Baldwin Wallace University, students can participate in thoughtfully organized service experiences that meet community needs and help foster civic responsibility. Students can serve locally or throughout the United States and even abroad to develop leadership skills as well as learn more about themselves.  

The BW Conservatory of Music offers undergraduate students master class opportunities with world-renowned faculty. As an undergraduate-only Conservatory, students are not competing with graduate students and are able to take leading roles performing, composing, conducting, managing and teaching. The BW Conservatory has earned the prestigious designation as an All-Steinway School and has a number of programs that have earned national recognition.    

Lifelong Success

Baldwin Wallace University students succeed by having access to local leaders, mentors, and a location near Cleveland, Ohio that offers internships and field experiences for almost every interest. As a Baldwin Wallace University graduate, you will enter the marketplace with a degree that is respected by employers and graduate schools and have the experience to excel in the field of your choice.
