The Tri-Co Philly Program is a cohort-based program that offers urban-focused, experiential classes taught in Philadelphia. As part of the experience, students also participate in monthly cohort activities to connect with Philadelphia and fellow students across the Tri-Co.
The city setting provides a sense of place to enhance the classroom experience, helping students from Bryn Mawr, Haverford, and Swarthmore Colleges learn firsthand how course material is informed by the environment around them. Speakers and representatives from organizations are invited guests in the classes, and students explore the city through neighborhood tours, trips to museums, and work with various community-based groups.
Sophomores, juniors, and seniors are eligible to participate. Students in the program take two Philadelphia-focused courses in the city and participate in monthly cohort activities to connect with Philadelphia and fellow students across the Tri-Co. Tri-Co students outside of the program cohort may enroll in one of the program’s courses. Travel expenses related to Tri-Co Philly Program classes and cohort activities are covered for all students.
