English speaking countries, especially Great Britain and Amer-
ica, have much in common in their systems of education. But
still there is a great difference due to their different cultural
and historic backgrounds. Spot these differences after reading
the text Higher education in the USA. How do you account
for the diversity of the American system of education
Higher Education in the USA
For a very longtime America has led the world in higher education, quantitatively at least. In 1825 England still had only two universities, Oxford and Cambridge. The United States already had over fifty colleges fora smaller population. By now, in addition to hundreds of junior colleges (with two-year courses, teachers colleges and special schools, there are over 2,000 universities, colleges or other institutions with four year courses leading to bachelors degrees, though only some of these postgraduates work as well, for masters degrees and doctorates. Out of more than three million students who graduate from high school each year, about one million goon for higher education. Nearly half of all people aged nineteen are in full-time education, but only half of these successfully complete full four year courses for bachelors degrees. Some attend junior colleges with two-year courses (from which they may transfer most start full four-year degree courses. Most students receive federal loans to cover part

14 of their studies much smaller numbers receive federal grants, or scholarships or bursaries from other sources. Virtually all pay part of their costs themselves, from family contributions or from part-time work or both. Most college students are in public institutions, a minority in private ones. Every state has its own full university system, and in a big state there are many separate state campuses, general and special, at different levels. In terms of research output and of Nobel prizes won by academic staff, the most prestigious is the University of California at Berkeley (across the bay from San Francisco. It, and the University’s campus at Los Angeles, are two major institutions in the California state system, but there are many dozens of other campuses in that system. Some of the best-known private universities are the oldest ones in the North East, known informally as the Ivy League. These include Harvard, Yale and Princeton. The research carried on at Harvard and at its newer neighbor in Cambridge, the Massachusetts Institute of Technology, has contributed to the prosperity of the Boston area, though other private and public universities nearby also have some share in this development. In general the system of higher education in the United States is complex. It comprises four categories of institutions (1) the university which may contain (a) several colleges for undergraduate students seeking a bachelor’s (four- year) degree and (bone or more graduate schools for those continuing in specialized studies beyond the bachelor’s degree to obtain a master’s or doctoral degree (2) the four-year undergraduate institution – the colleges – most of which are non part of a university (3) the technical training institution, at which high school graduates may take courses ranging from six month to four years in duration and learn a wide variety of technical skills, from hair styling through business accounting to computer programming (4) and the two-year, or community college, from which students may enter many professions or may transfer to four-year colleges or universities. Any of these institutions, in any category, might be either public or private, depending on the source of its funding. The sheer diversity of American higher education, so baffling to foreigners, baffles many Americans as well. There were, according to the latest official count, 3,075 accredited colleges and universities in the United States. Many of them have their own separate lobbies in Washington the community colleges, the land-grant schools and other state universities, the former teacher’s colleges and regional state universities, the predominantly black schools, the private colleges. Not to mention women’s schools and Catholic schools affiliated with dozens of other religious denominations…
