CAN COLLEGES OFFER GRADUATE DEGREES?

English

Sometimes, the line between college and university can be a little blurry. For example, The College of William & Mary in Virginia is called a college, but they offer graduate degrees in business, law, education and marine science. St. Joseph’s College in New York offers graduate degrees in education, business, creative writing and more. Why are many institutions that offer graduate degrees called colleges? Sometimes, the answer is tradition. Institutions with a long history of being called a college risk upsetting students and alumni by changing their name. When Mt. Union College in Ohio proposed changing their name to University of Mt. Union, angry alumni protested on social media.
