A Tradition of Excellence

Bryn Mawr College is a small liberal arts college, part of the Seven Sisters network of women’s colleges in the United States. Founded in 1885, Bryn Mawr College was the first women’s college to offer a Ph.D. education in the U.S. Since 1931, graduate enrollment has been co-educational and today embraces inclusivity as one of its core values. It is our tradition that each department features a remarkable diversity in sub-disciplinary study coordinated by a community of scholars known for their pedagogical expertise and discipline-defining research. Bryn Mawr College is internationally recognized for consistently producing distinguished alumnae with a global reach.
