Thanks to an expanding program in Arabic studies at Smith and the Five Colleges, learning the dominant language of the Middle East is more than memorizing a new alphabet and studying verb tenses.


For International Students

If you are a young woman looking for the best in American education, Smith College may be just the place for you. We offer superior preparation for graduate school and careers through small classes where women are taken seriously -- and inspired to excel -- as scholars, scientists and leaders.

You'll find Smith in Massachusetts, in the northeastern region of the United States, an area with some of the highest concentrations of international students anywhere in the country. This year, Smith welcomed some 200 international students from 58 countries. These women chose Smith because they were looking for an exceptional college education.
