Bryn Mawr is one of the world's most distinctive, distinguished colleges.
Every year 1,300 undergraduate women and 400 graduate students from around the world gather on the College's historic campus to study with leading scholars, conduct advanced research, and expand the boundaries of what's possible. A Bryn Mawr woman is defined by a rare combination of personal characteristics: * An intense intellectual commitment * A purposeful vision of her life * A desire to make a meaningful contribution to the world. These attributes create a spirit that is palpable on campus. It is visible, too, in the lives of Bryn Mawr alumnae, women who have become leaders in a wide range of fields, including those in which women are traditionally underrepresented. The College offers more than 36 majors, 38 minors, and a range of opportunities for interdisciplinary study and independent research, as well as full cross-registration with nearby Haverford College and cooperative programs with Swarthmore and the University of Pennsylvania. In addition, Bryn Mawr is one of the few liberal-arts colleges in the country that offers master's and doctoral degree programs. Source: www.brynmawr.edu
