US universities and colleges
The US government does not manage the system of higher education and, accordingly, higher educational institutions (except for eight federal universities that train officers, FBI employees and some other government employees). Universities in the United States of America (like the entire US education system) are either private or owned by state or municipal governments (public universities).
Every US state contains at least one college, in many states – several universities owned by the state government. Among the most famous and popular US universities owned by the states are the universities of Virginia, California, Michigan and others. As a rule, studying at a state university is cheaper for residents of this state than for visitors.
Most US universities are private. The most prestigious universities in the United States of America, known as the “Ivy League” (Harvard, Princeton, Yale, Columbia, Pennsylvania, Brown, Cornell Universities and Dartmouth College), “Seven Sisters” (the most prestigious liberal arts women’s colleges in the Northeast) are also private. USA), Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT), California Institute of Technology (Caltech) and others.
Although in the United States of America any institution of higher education is often referred to as a “college” (college), US universities are very different. The most common are universities and colleges of various types.
A university in the United States is, as a rule, a large university, which includes several colleges or schools (some analogues of faculties). Universities train specialists in various fields of knowledge, students can obtain a master’s degree, and postgraduate education (postgraduate studies) is also widely practiced. Unlike most colleges in the United States, universities are usually active in research.
In most colleges in the United States, education lasts four years and ends with a bachelor’s degree. In the US, there are also so-called “junior” or “community” colleges with a two-year program of study, which give the graduate any particular specialty and the so-called “associate” degree (something like “associate”).
