Graduate Education in a Liberal Arts Environment
Founded in 1885, Bryn Mawr College was the first U.S. institution to grant the Ph.D. to women. Today, women and men in the Graduate School of Arts and Sciences pursue research in graduate programs of international reputation.
The Graduate School of Arts and Sciences offers M.A. and Ph.D. degrees in 6 distinguished departments:
Small and Selective
This co-educational graduate school of about 100 students is kept deliberately small and selective to provide a first-class educational experience for all students while facilitating flexibility, creativity and innovation in ways that are unique among higher educational institutions.
Interdisciplinary and Collaborative
A hallmark of graduate studies at Bryn Mawr involves distinctive interdisciplinary collaboration, for which the Graduate Group in Archaeology, Classics and History of Art received a National Endowment for the Humanities Challenge Grant.
The Graduate Group in Science and Mathematics fosters interdisciplinary thinking in the sciences and provides for a unique interdisciplinary approach to professional development for Ph.D. students.
