Higher Education in the United States of America




 

Higher education in the USA is the most extensive and versatile system of postschool education in the world. There are two main types of higher education: state (or public) and private. The main difference between the two is a financial one. It is possible to classify institutions of higher education in the United States of America into four main categories:

1. Technical institutions and "semi-professional" schools offering two-year or three-year courses, leading to an "associate" qualification and preparing students for employment in semi-professional occupations such as medical, dental and engineering technician or skilled employees for commerce, etc.

2. Junior colleges or community colleges which provide two-year courses which may lead to studies in the two categories below.

3. Liberal arts colleges, states colleges and independent professional institutions awarding the first degree (bachelor's degree) and sometimes the master's degree and the doctorate. Independent professional institutions include teacher-training colleges, institutes of technology (providing short courses in category I),schools of theology, art, etc.

4. Universities, which may award the highest degree (doctor's degree).

In most of large universities students can study all subjects, Horn humanities to applied sciences. Within a university, colleges provide undergraduate courses leading to the first university degree and graduate schools provide courses leading to higher (postgraduate) degrees. It should be noted, however, that the various programmes offered by different types of institutions often overlap considerably. A university, for instance, usually comprises institutions of professional education as well as offers courses similar to those of a technical institutions.
