The Academic Program


Focus Courses

Focus Courses are 7-week long, half-semester courses that provide students with an opportunity to sample a wider variety of fields and topics as they explore the curriculum. While some Focus Courses have been designed to whet the appetite for further study, several upper level topics lend themselves to a more in-depth, shorter experience. Focus courses are as rigorous and fast-paced as full semester courses and are used to experiment and engage with more of Bryn Mawr’s stellar academic offerings.
