About

History

When Bryn Mawr College opened its doors in 1885, it offered women a more ambitious academic program than any previously available to them in the United States.

Education

A Bryn Mawr education is designed to encourage intellectual exploration, independent initiative, advanced research, and the mastery of skills essential to meaningful scholarship: critical reasoning, reasoned argument, clear expression, and the ability to solve problems creatively and work across disciplines.

Research

Bryn Mawr College offers undergraduate students many opportunities to undertake academic research. Students refine their research skills once they have declared a Major course of study, with many departments offering research methodology courses along with senior thesis opportunities. The Office of Institutional Research, Planning, and Assessment gathers, evaluates, and analyzes campus data and provides information about the College both to the general public and to College policymakers. A major role of the office is to provide data analysis in support of the assessment of student learning and of institutional effectiveness. This information informs future policy decisions and program improvements on campus.

Bryn Mawr's campus, long recognized as one of the most beautiful in the country, is set in a century-old, varied suburb that is 11 miles west of Philadelphia, the nation's sixth-largest city. The majestic stone buildings that anchor the campus were the first examples of a style of architecture that came to be known as Collegiate Gothic, and they served as templates for dozens of other campuses. Today the campus includes 40 buildings on 135 acres. Got five minutes? Take a roller-coaster video tour of the campus with student guides.
