Women's colleges and universities across the United States have played an important role in helping to establish educational equality for women. Women and men haven't always had equal access to higher education in America. Women's colleges in the US were first founded in the early 1800's, and while many institutions went co-ed in the 1970's, the more than 50 women's colleges still operating today continue to provide excellent opportunities for women undertaking post-secondary study.
Women's colleges and universities are located all across the US, from coast to coast: California to Connecticut. Whether public or private, secular or church-related, four-year or two-year, women's colleges and universities aim to create an environment where students are free to explore any area of study, and where teachers and mentors encourage everyone's potential. They offer all the same programs you'd expect from a world-class university or college; from computers to creative arts, engineering to education, women's college and university programs are innovative, challenging and above all, supportive.
Women's colleges and universities welcome international students, and can be an especially beneficial option for students coming from areas where women don't have easy or equal access to education. So when you're researching the available universities and colleges in each state, don't forget to look for women's colleges and universities.
