If you’re thinking of pursuing a bachelor’s – or master’s – degree in the U.S. as an international student, where higher education is among the world’s finest, the University of Mary Washington, with its “best value” ratings, might be for you.
Picture yourself living on America’s East Coast, in a city rich in U.S. history. Just an hour from Washington, D.C., UMW is a small school with growing diversity and passionate professors. Our liberal arts and sciences curriculum – with more than 90 majors, minors, and courses of study – will challenge your mind and let you explore.
And, as you plunge into life in America, we won’t leave you hanging. Tap into our Center for International Education and James Farmer Multicultural Center.
