Academics

Harcum College offers a comprehensive educational program which emphasizes career opportunities for its graduates and the growth and development of each student as an individual and as a responsible member of society.

Harcum offers over 20 majors. Noncredit courses are offered through the Office of Continuing Studies. Courses are offered at Harcum’s Bryn Mawr campus, at partnership sites, and online. Harcum majors include practicums and internship as important parts of the curriculum. In the practicum or internship, qualified students spend a period of time gaining valuable experience in a workplace where they apply knowledge acquired in the classroom, and learn first-hand about their chosen fields.

The faculty at Harcum College are dedicated to the teaching - learning process. As such, they embrace active, student-centered teaching strategies and regularly perform classroom assessment techniques to improve student learning.

Harcum offers its students both academic support and career and personal counseling designed to nurture their individual skills and to encourage their participation in the social and academic life of the College.
