Academic Partnerships

Our unique four-college exchange program with Bryn Mawr, Swarthmore and the University of Pennsylvania allows us to retain the strengths of the small college experience, while offering the expanded resources and opportunities usually found at a larger university. Haverford students can take a staggering array of classes at any of the Quaker Consortium schools.
