Bryn Mawr teaches and values critical, creative and independent habits of thought and expression in an undergraduate liberal-arts curriculum for women and in coeducational graduate programs in the arts and sciences and in social work and social research.
Since its founding in 1885, the College has maintained its character as a small residential community that fosters close working relationships between faculty and students. The faculty of teacher/scholars emphasizes learning through conversation and collaboration, primary reading, original research and experimentation. Our cooperative relationship with Haverford College enlarges the academic opportunities for students and their social community. Our active ties to Swarthmore College and the University of Pennsylvania as well as the proximity of the city of Philadelphia further extend the opportunities available at Bryn Mawr.
