Brookhaven College is a diverse, progressive educational environment enriching the lives of students, employees and community members.

Brookhaven College provides affordable options in higher education, ranging from transferable freshman- and sophomore-level classes and degrees to stand-alone associate degrees, skills awards and certificates.
