Imagine going to college in one of America's top college towns. Villanova is located in a beautiful suburban neighborhood just 12 miles west of Philadelphia. Philly is home to nearly 90 colleges, universities, and other higher-education institutions. With convenient train stops on campus, the city and all it has to offer is just a short ride away.
CLAS partners with many area companies and nonprofits, so you'll have plenty of internship and networking opportunities. Our relationships with cultural institutions from museums to historic sites give you the opportunity to expand and share your research and talents.
It's an exciting, vital region where you'll interact with students from other universities, cheer on professional sports teams, take advantage of diverse cultural offerings and make important contacts with professionals who may one day become your employers.
