Working together yields the deepest learning and greatest growth.
Thanks to collaboration between the students, faculty, and staff within the Tri-College Consortium—Haverford, Bryn Mawr, and Swarthmore Colleges—the depth and breadth of your Haverford education are second to none.
Courses at the University of Pennsylvania, including the Wharton School of Business that aren't offered at Haverford, Bryn Mawr, or Swarthmore are available to Haverford students through the Quaker Consortium.
Fast-track your master’s degree.
Haverford works with five institutions to offer accelerated-degree partnership programs, so you can get a head start on your master’s degree.
University of Pennsylvania
4+1 Bioethics Program
Students can take up to three graduate bioethics courses at Penn, while completing their undergraduate work at Haverford; and, if they apply and are accepted to the MBE Program, will complete the rest of the program at Penn after graduation.
4+1 Engineering Program
Study for four years at Haverford, then one year at Penn, and receive a Bachelor's of Science from Haverford and a Master's in Engineering from Penn. Haverford is the first liberal arts college in the world to enter into such an agreement with an Ivy League engineering program.
3/2 City Planning Program
This arrangement with the University of Pennsylvania’s Department of City and Regional Planning allows a student to earn both a Bachelor’s degree in the Growth and Structure of Cities at Bryn Mawr and a Master of City Planning (MCP) at the University of Pennsylvania in five years.
4+1 Education Program
The Urban Teaching Apprenticeship Program at the University of Pennsylvania Graduate School of Education prepares students for a career enacting student-centered learning and increasing educational equity in urban school systems. Haverford and Bryn Mawr students can apply to UPenn with a customized process to submatriculate and are able to take one or two courses that will apply to both their undergraduate degree and their master’s degree. Graduates will receive an M.S.Ed. as well as the Pennsylvania teaching certificate.
California Institute of Technology
Haverford and CalTech have a joint program under which a student who is interested in engineering may, in the second semester of their junior year, apply for transfer to an engineering program at CalTech.
Claremont McKenna College
If accepted into the Robert Day School of Economics and Finance graduate school, you might be the recipient of a full tuition scholarship made available yearly to a Haverford student for their one-year Master’s in Finance at the Claremont McKenna College (CMC) campus in Claremont, California.
Haverford has been invited to join other distinguished colleges and universities in an agreement with the Center for Latin American at Georgetown University to participate in a five-year joint degree program. The cooperative agreement allows undergraduate concentrators in Latin American, Iberian, and Latino Studies to pursue an accelerated course of study in a graduate degree.
If accepted into China Studies Program of Zhejiang University (ZHU), you will receive full scholarship for their two-year Master’s in China Studies in Hangzhou. The program is conducted in English, but training in Mandarin is provided to help students navigate the university, the city, and the broader culture, where you will undertake an internship between your first year and your second year.
