Unique Academic Options

Penn students suffer from an embarrassment of riches in terms of academic options. In fact, it’s often the case that advisors have to talk students down from taking on too much once they get here. And while having an option of multiple degrees or majors might be appealing, just know that only 25% of students in the College graduate with more than one major, and less than 10% with more than one degree from Penn. Why? Well most students find that studying one major from one school at Penn, and doing very well in that area, prepares them best for a first job or graduate school. Additionally, the College’s curriculum allows for the flexibility to study many unrelated areas, so students satisfy curiosities without having to take on additional majors or degrees simply to take classes that interest them.
