A new program will deepen the engagement of Swarthmore, Bryn Mawr, and Haverford with Philadelphia, through nonresidential courses taught in the heart of Center City.

“The Tri-Co Philly Program will present students with the opportunity to better understand the diversity of the world we inhabit, to directly observe the links between scholarship and lived experience, and to appreciate cities as vital sites of innovation, creativity, and complexity,” says Program Planning Director Calista Cleary.

This spring, students will take the class “Philadelphia: Inventing a City,” and then either “Narrativity and Hip Hop” or “The Politics of the Creative Class in American Cities.”
