Penn State Behrend gives undergraduate and graduate students the best of two worlds: The friendly, student-centered environment of a smaller college and the academic resources of a major research university.
We produce graduates prepared for success—empowering them as students through highly engaged instruction, research, and out-of-class experiences combined with a distinctive Open Laboratory model of learning and discovery.
Penn State Behrend is a four-year and graduate college of Penn State. We offer an academically rigorous, globally respected Penn State education in a setting where students can have close interaction with faculty and meaningful out-of-classroom experiences.
With nearly 4,600 students in resident instruction, 40-plus academic programs, and an 854-acre campus, Penn State Behrend has the largest undergraduate enrollment of Penn State’s Commonwealth Campuses.
The best way to see if any college is right for you is to visit campus. Penn State Behrend hosts one major Saturday visitation event each semester, plus individual appointments most weekdays. Can’t make it to campus? Take our virtual 360-degree tour.
