Rigorous Scholarship

Bryn Mawr graduate students work closely with their faculty advisor to cultivate a body of scholarship that culminates in a Doctor of Philosophy degree. Students are expected to actively contribute to their fields, representing Bryn Mawr in peer-reviewed publications, by presenting at national and international conferences, participating in collaborative projects, and through graduate teaching and mentorship. Bryn Mawr College's liberal arts environment provides students with a broad educational foundation and promotes the development of well-rounded scholars. Bryn Mawr's emphasis on interdisciplinary graduate education prepares our students for a competitive academic market that values pedagogical training as much as ground breaking research.
