Simmons at a Glance

Located in Boston’s historic Fenway neighborhood along the Emerald Necklace (designed by Frederick Law Olmsted,) Simmons College is a small, private university, which has educated students for enriching careers and useful, independent lives since 1899. Decades before women in America gained the right to vote, Boston businessman John Simmons had a revolutionary idea—that women should be able to earn independent livelihoods—and Simmons College was the result. Simmons continues to educate its students for successful careers and meaningful lives through its women’s undergraduate programs and coeducational masters and doctoral programs.

Simmons offers a pioneering liberal arts education for undergraduate women integrated with professional work experience, interdisciplinary study, and a global perspective. Students receive a broad-based, liberal arts education strengthened by direct experience in their area of concentration through internships or independent studies, research, fieldwork, or theses. Simmons offers more than 40 undergraduate majors and programs, with minors in all departments.

Simmons’s renowned graduate programs educate men and women in the health sciences, nursing, education, liberal arts, communications management, social work, and library and information science along with the first MBA designed specifically for women.  Since 2013, Simmons’s nursing, social work, business, and library science masters programs have been offered online to students across the United States.

In fall 2016, Simmons enrolled more than 1,700 undergraduate women and more than 5000 graduate students (1600 full-time and 3600 part-time; more than 1700 enrolled in online programs.)

Simmons has 219 full-time faculty members of whom 43% are tenured. In addition, more than 600 part-time faculty – many of whom are clinical faculty working in schools, archives, libraries, hospitals, businesses, government, and a variety of non-profit organizations – instruct in face-to-face and online programs.

Simmons is a member of the Colleges of the Fenway, a voluntary collaboration among six colleges within a five-minute walk from Simmons’s campus. This partnership allows cross-registration, social events for students, and faculty collaboration, as well as coordination on back-end technology and administrative functions. The College’s other neighbors include renowned museums and cultural institutions (such as Boston’s Museum of Fine Arts and the Isabella Stewart Gardner Museum), major libraries (such as the Massachusetts Historical Society and The Boston Public Library), other large university campuses (such as Northeastern University and Boston University), and a number of hospitals and medical research facilities (such as Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center, Brigham and Women’s Hospital, and Children’s Hospital), clustered around the nearby Harvard Medical School.
