Comparison of Community Colleges and Universities

There are more than 3,500 colleges and universities in the U.S. It should be noted that Americans don’t see much difference between college and university, because both refer to the same thing – an educational institution that provides the opportunity to receive higher education.

Often university consists of several colleges or schools, that is, even if you entered the university, you will still study in one of its colleges. Universities and colleges generally provide higher education (Bachelor Degree, Master’s degree, and PhD).

There are two-year colleges (junior, or community college) and four-year colleges. Students who live at home as a rule study in a junior college, and part of the cost of study is paid by the local authorities.

After finishing a community college, students get Associate Degree. Community Colleges are usually much cheaper, but it is a lot harder to find a job after graduation from them, especially if you have been studying the specialty, which in theory requires higher education (a lawyer, for example). One of the major differences in education between universities and Community Colleges is the fact that studies at universities focus on the research and findings. Universities employ professors who at least have Master Degree and are directly involved in science they are teaching.

Community Colleges employ ordinary professionals and teachers, often without the Master Degree. Most often Community College graduates transfer their credits to the university and continue to study there in order to get the Bachelor’s Degree.

Today, many Community Colleges offer Bachelor’s Degree as well, while many universities offer Associate Degree. In any case, it is a lot more prestigious (though more expensive) to study at universities than Community Colleges. Plus it will be much easier to find a job you want after graduation from university.

The so-called small and medium colleges also play an important role in American system of education. Small colleges include colleges with the number of students from 1,500 to 5,000. Small and medium-sized colleges provide active support to international students. They have special programs of financial support to students from abroad, as well as programs to help students adjust to the realities of American life.

There are also specialized colleges, organized by gender or religious basis, in the US. For example, Wabash College in Indiana and Deep Springs College in California are for men only; University of Dallas in Texas, University of Notre Dame in Indiana are for Catholics, etc.

There are more than 3,500 colleges and universities in the U.S. It should be noted that Americans don’t see much difference between college and university, because both refer to the same thing – an educational institution that provides the opportunity to receive higher education.
