The Physics program from Bryn Mawr College offers graduate students academic excellence, exciting research opportunities, and competitive financial support in a distinctive environment where shared intellectual work thrives in a liberal arts college setting.


Our small size allows students and faculty members to work together closely and for formal graduate course work to be handled in small tutorials, which can be tailored to the needs of the students.

While graduate education is open to both men and women, the culture of the department is one that values and respects women as physicists and creates opportunities for women (and all students) to achieve at the highest levels, with role models at all levels. 

The Physics program offered at Bryn Mawr College occupies an unique position in a women’s college provides an informed and thoughtful perspective in this regard. All students will leave the program with a heightened sensitivity to, and knowledge of, the importance of training women scientists.
