In higher education, a men's college is an undergraduate, bachelor's degree-granting institution whose students are exclusively men. Many are liberal arts colleges.

Around the world[edit]

In North America[edit]

United States[edit]

In the United States, co-education did not become prevalent until 1900. Prior to that, the majority of private colleges and universities were sex-segregated. There are few remaining men's colleges in the U.S. today, most of which are Orthodox Jewish Rabbinical colleges (yeshivas).

Notable cases[edit]
