Academic Partnerships

Through the Tri-College Consortium, Haverford, Bryn Mawr, and Swarthmore students take classes at all three schools and frequently collaborate on extracurricular activities.

The new Tri-Co Philly Program is a semester-long, non-residential program that provides students both curricular and co-curricular activities in nearby Philadelphia.

The urban setting of Philadelphia provides a sense of place to enhance the classroom experience, helping students learn firsthand how the material in the courses is informed by the environment around them.
