General Studies

Certain courses focus on areas that are not usually covered in the Bryn Mawr curriculum and provide a supplement to the areas more regularly covered; these are called general studies courses and are listed in the Tri-Co Course Guide under this heading. Courses that cut across a number of disciplines and emphasize relationships among them are cross-listed and described under the departments that sponsor them.

Many general studies courses are open, without prerequisite, to all students. With the permission of the major department, they may be taken for major credit.
