Master's Degree after Study at Haverford

For many students interested in engineering, the best option is to spend the full four years at Haverford, taking two or three engineering courses through our course exchange agreements with Swarthmore and the University of Pennsylvania, then to apply for a Master's or Ph.D. program elsewhere.

The Master's takes 1.5-2 additional years to complete, while the Ph.D. takes 4-6 years. Students planning for this option should contact the Engineering Coordinator, Prof. Walter Smith (, as early as possible during their time at Haverford.
