Academic Programs

Even before students begin classes at Cabrini, they have opportunities to meet classmates, explore campus and the Philadelphia area, and settle into the college experience through Accepted Students Day, Summer Orientation, and Pre-Orientation Experiences.

Cabrini's First Year Experience Program facilitates the successful transition of first-year students to college, helping them learn who they are and how they fit into the Cabrini community and preparing them for academic success, student growth, and development.

In students' first years, they have the opportunity to live and study with students who share a common interest through Living and Learning Communities. Students also have a faculty member as a first-year advisor, and they begin their Engagements with the Common Good course series, which exposes students to current societal issues and challenges them to consider possible solutions. Plus, a College Success Seminar helps students learn the ropes of campus, including how to search for books or articles in the library and how to register for classes.

Cabrini offers an Honors Program dedicated to honing students' critical-thinking skills, developing creative and imaginative impulses, and pushing them to expand their intellectual horizons. The Honors Program takes an integrated, interdisciplinary approach to learning that is distinctively different from most other college courses. The program strives to model lifelong learning, giving students the tools they need to succeed in an academic setting and in the after-college world.

As early as the second semester of a student's first year, he or she has the opportunity to study abroad in traditional semester-long and year-long programs, during the summer, or by enrolling in one of the short-term study abroad courses offered by the College each spring semester. Short-term study abroad courses include a 7to 10-day international component.

Students have studied science in Switzerland, the Spanish language and culture in Madrid, the European Union in Amsterdam, and theater in London.

If students need additional academic support, Cabrini's Center for Teaching & Learning offers free peer tutoring and a writing center.

Majors and Degrees Offered

Students can earn the following degrees at Cabrini: Bachelor of Science, Bachelor of Arts, Bachelor of Social Work, Master of Science, Master of Education, Master of Arts, Doctor of Organizational Development (PhD or DBA), and a Doctor of Educational Studies.
