A college created with you in mind.

Stephens College was founded as a women’s college in 1833 at a time when universities were not open to women. Although women today have options, we know that a women-only environment provides unique advantages.

Here, students receive challenging and relevant coursework, benefit from small class sizes and enjoy opportunities to network with alumnae and professional guest experts in their fields of interest.

Stephens women also receive innovative career preparatory programming and have access to numerous leadership opportunities.

Studies have shown that students who attend women’s colleges are better prepared for their careers.
