Academic Opportunities

Learning happens inside and outside of the traditional classroom.

The value of a rich liberal arts tradition extends beyond the curriculum itself to the far reaches of cutting edge research and real-world internships, community partnerships and study abroad.

  • Penn is a world-class research institution where undergraduates have the opportunity to participate in the creation of knowledge.
