You can create a program that fits your interests:

What makes attending a college or university in the USA different?

The “liberal arts” approach develops broadly educated graduates who have strong writing, reading, research, and problem-solving skills. That means you will be prepared for virtually any job or career. Students at U.S. universities and colleges are active participants in their education. Individually, in research and project teams, in class and off-campus, they are encouraged to think critically, be creative, ask questions, and apply concepts in real-world situations.

Starting Your Search

Which U.S. colleges are best? Your goal is not to find the “best” college; it is to find the college that is best for you! Will you be most comfortable at a large school or a small one, in a warm climate or a colder one, in a city or in a suburban or rural area? Contrary to popular belief, there are no official rankings of U.S. institutions. Whatever your preferences, there are many options.
