About Simmons

Located in the heart of Boston, Simmons College encompasses the many benefits of a small university in the nation's best "college town."

For more than a century, Simmons has offered a pioneering liberal arts education for undergraduates integrated with professional work experience. Today, we also offer renowned coeducational graduate programs in nursing and health sciences, education, liberal arts, communications management, social work, and library and information science. Our MBA program is designed specifically for women.

A Best College

The Princeton Review has named Simmons as one of the "Best 377 Colleges" in 2013, a distinction held by only 15 percent of the four year colleges in America. The 2008 Kaplan college guidebook named Simmons as one of the "25 cutting-edge schools with an eye toward the future." Learn more: Request your free Admissions Kit today.
