Bryn Mawr College was established in 1885 as the first institution in the US to offer the Ph.D. degree to women. Today, the Graduate School at Bryn Mawr welcomes men and women students who wish to attain the highest level of academic achievement – the Ph.D. degree – within the environment of a highly acclaimed women’s liberal arts college. The faculty and students of Bryn Mawr's graduate programs are very proud of this long and distinctive heritage.

Sharon BurgmayerAs Interim Dean of Graduate Studies, I welcome you to the Graduate School of Arts and Sciences at Bryn Mawr College, a distinguished group of graduate programs in Classical and Near Eastern Archaeology, Greek, Latin and Classical Studies, History of Art; Chemistry, Mathematics and Physics.  This co-educational graduate school of about 120 students in Arts and Sciences is deliberately small to provide a first-class educational experience for all students. Our small size allows us to be flexible, creative and innovative in ways that are unique among higher educational institutions. Graduate studies at Bryn Mawr involve distinctive interdisciplinary collaboration, for which the Graduate Group in the Humanities received a National Endowment for the Humanities Challenge Grant. Parallel interdisciplinary activities within the Graduate Group in Science and Mathematics brings together researchers in these fields. facultyGraduate students learn from a community of outstanding scholar-teachers of international reputation who conduct cutting-edge research in their fields, many of whom are recipients of prestigious awards. Our highly dedicated and caring faculty serve as excellent mentors to our students, who following in the footsteps of their advisors, receive major national and international honors, such as Fulbright and Whiting Fellowships.facultyThe scholarly work towards a graduate degree is complemented by a dynamic Graduate Students Association (GSA) that sponsors a broad range of events – professional development workshops, graduate student symposia where students can present their research, and extracurricular activities for some relaxation.
