Massachusetts Online Masters

Massachusetts, constituent state of the United States of America. It was one of the original 13 states and is one of the 6 New England states, lying in the northeastern corner of the country. Massachusetts (officially called a commonwealth) is bounded to the north by Vermont and New Hampshire, to the east and southeast by the Atlantic Ocean, to the south by Rhode Island and Connecticut, and to the west by New York. It is the seventh smallest of the U.S. states in terms of total area. Its capital is Boston, the state’s most populous city. English explorer and colonist John Smith named the state for the Massachuset tribe, whose name meant “near the great hill”—believed to refer to Blue Hill, which rises south of Boston in an otherwise flat area. Massachusetts’s residents represent an amalgamation of the prototypical Yankee spirit of an earlier America and the energies of the later immigrants who flocked to its cities in the 19th and 20th centuries.

Education in Massachusetts

Massachusetts has been a pioneer in higher education. Many of the country’s oldest and most prestigious institutions of higher learning, in addition to Harvard, are located in Massachusetts. The largest, both in Boston, are Boston University (1839) and Northeastern University (1898). Nearby is the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (Cambridge; 1861) and Tufts (Medford; 1852) and Brandeis (Waltham; 1948) universities. Amherst (Amherst; 1821) and Williams (Williamstown; 1793) colleges have perpetuated traditions of academic excellence at small schools, while Mount Holyoke (South Hadley; 1837), Wellesley (Wellesley; 1870), Smith (Northampton; 1871), and Radcliffe (Cambridge; 1879) colleges have been pioneers in women’s education; in 1999 Radcliffe formally merged with Harvard and ceased to exist as a college. Boston College (Chestnut Hill; 1863) and College of the Holy Cross (Worcester; 1843) are major Roman Catholic institutions. The University of Massachusetts, founded as a land-grant college in 1863, is the principal state university and has five campuses—Amherst (main), Dartmouth, Lowell, and Boston and the medical school in Worcester.
