Compared to universities in the USA, colleges tend to be smaller institutions of higher education that focus on undergraduate education (e.g., four-year bachelor’s degree programs). Often, colleges offer liberal arts programs with broad areas of study in subjects like the humanities, science, and creative arts. Liberal arts colleges help students receive a comprehensive education, instead of specializing in one subject right from the start.
Typically, colleges do not offer a wide range of graduate programs (e.g., master’s degrees or doctorates) and may not have as many research opportunities as US universities. However, there are always exceptions, and in your research you may find some colleges that do include graduate programs.
