Higher education in the United States is an optional final stage of formal learning following secondary education. Higher education , also referred to as post-secondary education, third stage, third level, or tertiary education occurs most commonly at one of the 4,726 Title IV degree-granting institutions, either colleges or universities in the country. [1] These may be public universities , private universities , liberal arts colleges , community colleges , or for-profit colleges. High visibility issues include greater use of the Internet, such as massive open online courses , competency-based education , cutbacks in state spending, rapidly rising tuition and increasing student loans. [2]

As of 2012 [update] , the latest figures available in 2015, the US has a total of 4,726 Title IV -eligible, degree-granting institutions: 3,026 4-year institutions and 1,700 2-year institutions. [1] The US had 21 million students in higher education, roughly 5.7% of the total population. [6] About 13 million of these students were enrolled full-time which was 81,000 students lower than 2010.

    According to the National Student Clearinghouse, US college enrollment has declined for five consecutive years and is projected to continue declining for the next two decades. [3]

    Strong research and funding have helped make American colleges and universities among the world''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''s most prestigious, making them particularly attractive to international students , professors and researchers in the pursuit of academic excellence.

    The short form "United States" is also standard. Other common forms are the "U.S.", the "USA", and "America". Colloquial names are the "U.S. of A." and, internationally, the "States". " Columbia ", a name popular in poetry and songs of the late 18th century, derives its origin from Christopher Columbus ; it appears in the name " District of Columbia ". [53] In non-English languages, the name is frequently the translation of either the "United States" or "United States of America", and colloquially as "America". In addition, an abbreviation (e.g. USA) is sometimes used. [54]

    The phrase "United States" was originally plural, a description of a collection of independent states—e.g., "the United States are"—including in the Thirteenth Amendment to the United States Constitution , ratified in 1865. The singular form—e.g., "the United States is"—became popular after the end of the American Civil War. The singular form is now standard; the plural form is retained in the idiom "these United States". [55] The difference is more significant than usage; it is a difference between a collection of states and a unit. [56]

    I would recommend using a database to get ideas for questions/topics about education. Opposing Viewponts and CQ Researcher would be good starting points. Check out your local college or public library site for access to these databases. Here are some examples from the CQ Researcher site (the full text isn t free here, but will be if you have a library card and go through your library Web site) Can technology replace classroom teachers? http://library.cqpress.com/cqresearcher/document.php?id=cqresrre2011120200 Should higher education be state-funded for the public good? http://library.cqpress.com/globalresearcher/document.php?id=cqrglobal2011111500 Will reading remain a vital skill in the 21st century? http://library.cqpress.com/cqresearcher/document.php?id=cqresrre2008022200 If you need something different, open a chat with a local librarian or through a state cooperative site. They can help direct you to other sources or databases. Examples: http://www.askcolorado.org/ http://www.nypl.org/ask-nypl http://lib.nmsu.edu/askus/ http://cms.imperial.edu/index.php?pid=3118

    Well, there are a few things to take into consideration when asking such a question. One is. Can you afford to pay for college outright as opposed to getting financial aid? What I mean by this is, if you don t reside in the state in which you are attending college the fees are steeper because you would be considered a non resident. Two is. Does having a college degree from the United States really help you to be able to pursue your careers and goals much easier in the country in which you live? If it does then go for it; if it does not, then don t. Lastly, If it does make a difference then go to a U.C. instead of a C.S.U. The colleges are considered more prestigious and your chances for being picked up by an employer is much greater if by chance college does make a difference. Make sure to take all of the above into consideration before making the leap to the U.S. to obtain your degree. Think hard and do some research to really see if it s worth it because going to a U.C. isn t cheap. Good luck in your future endeavours! Patty B

    According to the National Student Clearinghouse, US college enrollment has declined for five consecutive years and is projected to continue declining for the next two decades. [3]

    Strong research and funding have helped make American colleges and universities among the world''s most prestigious, making them particularly attractive to international students , professors and researchers in the pursuit of academic excellence. [4]

    The short form "United States" is also standard. Other common forms are the "U.S.", the "USA", and "America". Colloquial names are the "U.S. of A." and, internationally, the "States". " Columbia ", a name popular in poetry and songs of the late 18th century, derives its origin from Christopher Columbus ; it appears in the name " District of Columbia ". [53] In non-English languages, the name is frequently the translation of either the "United States" or "United States of America", and colloquially as "America". In addition, an abbreviation (e.g. USA) is sometimes used. [54]

    The phrase "United States" was originally plural, a description of a collection of independent states—e.g., "the United States are"—including in the Thirteenth Amendment to the United States Constitution , ratified in 1865. The singular form—e.g., "the United States is"—became popular after the end of the American Civil War. The singular form is now standard; the plural form is retained in the idiom "these United States". [55] The difference is more significant than usage; it is a difference between a collection of states and a unit. [56]
