Hollins University

Hollins was founded in 1842 as Virginia's first chartered women's college. The first coed graduate program was established in 1958. Hollins enrolls approximately 1,050 students in its undergraduate and graduate programs. Its 475-acre campus is located in Roanoke, Virginia.

Hollins' distinctions include a nationally ranked graduate creative writing program; active writer- and artist-in-residence programs; a January Short Term that enables students to pursue internships in careers across the globe, participate in travel/study programs, or focus intensely on an unusual course or project; one of the oldest study abroad programs in the country; and a leadership program that offers executive-level training to undergraduates. The university awards the bachelor of arts degree in 27 fields; the bachelor of science in four fields; the bachelor of arts and fine arts in dance; the master's degree in children's literature, liberal studies, screenwriting and film studies, and teaching; the master of fine arts degree in children's literature, creative writing, dance, playwriting, and screenwriting; a certificate of advanced studies; and a post-baccalaureate certificate in dance. Hollins is accredited by the Commission on Colleges of the Southern Association of Colleges and Schools and is on the approved list of the American Association of University Women.
