Bryn Mawr is home to a very distinguished group of graduate programs in the Arts and Sciences, including: Classical and Near Eastern Archaeology; Greek, Latin and Classical Studies; History of Art; Chemistry; Mathematics; and Physics.
Graduate studies at Bryn Mawr are distinctive in their interdisciplinary collaboration, as noted in the work of our Graduate Group in the Humanities, the recipient of a National Endowment for the Humanities Challenge Grant, and our expanding Graduate Group in Science and Mathematics, which brings together researchers in these fields.
As one of the nation’s oldest academic social work programs, the Bryn Mawr College Graduate School of Social Work and Social Research (GSSWSR) is part of a College with a long-standing, well respected dedication to both scholarship and social responsibility. The School’s philosophy and practice reflect the College’s Quaker roots, its historical concern for oppressed or marginalized groups, and a corresponding commitment to transforming the world for the better.
By offering three degree programs—Master of Social Service (M.S.S.), Master of Social Service and Master of Public Health (M.S.S./M.P.H), and Doctor of Philosophy (Ph.D.)—the GSSWSR makes it possible for students to experience and explore the full range of theories and skills necessary for today’s social work practitioner, researcher, or academician. The program goals and objectives are ambitious yet aligned to exceed the multiple expectations placed on social work professionals.
Bryn Mawr's program provides full-time, intensive preparation for medical school in one year and is designed for highly motivated students who did not previously take premedical courses. Bryn Mawr's program consistently achieves a medical school acceptance rate higher than 98 percent. We're also proud of our diverse network of volunteer and job opportunities accessible through contacts with alumnae/i and other health care leaders.
