Vassar College - Bachelor's Degree
Vassar College was founded in 1861 as a pioneer of liberal arts education for women in the United States. The College then called Vassar Female College got its name from its founder, Matthew Vassar. Vassar commenced its first classes in September 1865 with 353 students and prided itself on offering young women a liberal arts education equal to that of the best men’s colleges. Art was a big part of the study at Vassar. When creating this college, Matthew Vassar stated that art should stand “boldly forth as an educational force.” To fulfill this mission, Vassar was the first college in the country to include a museum and teaching collection among its facilities.
Vassar became coeducational in 1969 and hence renamed, Vassar College. Today it is recognised as one of the best liberal arts colleges in the country. Vassar’s curriculum today is rich and varied with concentrations ranging from Latin to cognitive science, from biochemistry to religion and from astronomy to Africana studies. Vassar, was among the first colleges to offer courses in drama, psychology, and Russian and has experimented with interdepartmental courses since the early 1900s; it has long been recognised for curricular innovation.
