Undergraduate Schools

Penn’s four undergraduate and twelve graduate schools, three teaching hospitals, and 100+ research centers are all within a 10-minute walk of each other, allowing Penn students easy access to the entire University and opportunities to explore unlimited interconnections.

Most students begin their journey at Penn in one of our undergraduate schools, but once on campus, may take courses in all four. Regardless of school or major, all Penn undergraduates are able to explore and understand our world through an arts and sciences foundation, while students in the College of Arts and Sciences have the option to also explore the core areas in nursing, engineering, and business. Penn’s organization makes it possible for students to sample from among more than 4,200 courses (including offerings in more than 40 languages), choose from a variety of interdisciplinary minors, and pursue more than one degree.

Whichever of the four schools they call home, in everything they do, Penn students combine theoretical and practical thinking while developing the tools they need to innovate and lead in a world that demands an increasingly broad perspective.
