美國最小的大學

不喜歡人多?美國最小的大學:完整清單

美國地廣,又有來自世界各國的學生,有些學校的規模動輒數萬人,對於一些不喜歡人多或害怕社交的學生來說可能會是一個壓力,因此你可能會想選擇一些小型大學。

美國最小的大學有哪些?一般來說,我們對小型大學的定義是學生人數低於 5,000 人,不過美國其實有更多學校規模只有它的 1/10!今天我們就要來介紹這些真正「小」的大學,並告訴你它們有哪些特點、適不適合就讀。


什麼是「最小的大學」?

在這篇文章中,我們的定義是整所大學的學生人數介於 50-500 人之間。而這些大學之所以人數這麼少,主要有三個原因:

1. 提供非常專業的課程

通常這些小型大學致力於提供很專業的課程,例如藝術、醫學、工程,或是一些宗教為主的學校,他們只想找那些需要真正專業技術的學生。

至於小型文理學院則會強調一些特色課程,例如有些學校會要求 “Great Books” 課程,指的是所有學生都必須閱讀經典名著。如果你正在尋找這類比較專門的課程,那麼這些小型學校可能就是你很好的選擇。

2. 大型大學的拆分

有些學校曾經是某間大型大學的一部分,後來分支形成獨立的校園,通常會與大學縮減規模有關。當然也可能是他們自己開發新類型的課程,或希望為不同客群的學生提供服務,所以才從大型大學獨立出來。

3. 個性化的學術體驗

這些小型學校本來人數就不多,因此教授可以給予每位學生更多關注。在這些學校中,學生可以設計自己的課程,並從教授和顧問那邊獲得專屬指導與支持,也會有很多溝通機會。

也因為如此,通常學校比較不會關注成績,更多會重視學生的學習過程、交流與發展,有些學校甚至完全不打成績。
