Hollins University is a private institution founded in 1842 and was the first all-female college to be chartered in Virginia. Today, all the undergraduate programs remain female-only, but men can be admitted at the graduate level. Hollins was one of the first colleges in the US to create a study abroad program and now hosts them in many countries, including in London and Paris, and a service learning project in Lucea, Jamaica. A majority of undergraduates choose to study English, biology, or business.
