Fall & Spring 2023 Applications Are Still Open!


Simmons University encompasses the many benefits of a small university in the nation's best "college town." Located in the heart of Boston, Simmons University is a private university, home to a respected women’s undergraduate program, as well as coeducational graduate programs in nursing and health sciences, liberal arts, business, communications, social work, public health, and library and information science.

Simmons has established a model of higher education that only today other colleges and universities are beginning to adapt: the combination of education for leadership in high-demand professional fields with the intellectual foundation of the liberal arts. The result is a Simmons graduate prepared not only to work, but to lead in professional, civic, and personal life; a vision of empowerment that Simmons calls preparation for life’s work. The Simmons story is one of growth, innovation, and a solid foundation, fueled by on-the-ground and online enrollment, and investments in its campus and technology.
