Simmons College is a private women's college located in the heart of Boston in the Fenway area. Founded in 1899, Simmons was the first college in the United States to offer women a liberal arts education integrated with career preparation. Nationally recognized, Simmons ranks among the nation's best private liberal arts colleges.  

Students choose from over 40 majors and have the option to combine diverse fields of interest to meet their academic and professional goals. Over 30 percent of Simmons students choose to double major, and many take advantage of the opportunity to enter into one of the accelerated degree programs, which allow them to earn a bachelor's degree plus a master's or doctoral degree in less time than traditional programs.

Although primarily a women's college, the college offers graduate studies to both men and women. Graduate studies are offered in five distinct schools: Arts and Sciences, Library and Information Science, Nursing and Health Science, Management and Social work.  

What makes Simmons' academic environment unique, is the belief that a strong foundation in the liberal arts should be combined with an equally strong level of real-world experience and professional preparation. This approach offers great advantages: a broad education and view of the world, and a chance to develop a range of professional skills and strengths needed in the job market.

Simmons College sponsors athletics teams in a variety of sports including basketball, crew, cross-country, field hockey, lacrosse, soccer, softball, swimming & diving, tennis, and volleyball.

Located in the historic Fenway neighborhood of Boston, Simmons students say it's the best of both worlds, a quintessential brick-and-ivy New England campus in the middle of a thriving city.
