BFS at Wharton (Joseph Wharton Scholars)


The Joseph Wharton Scholars program emphasizes the importance of breadth in the liberal arts and sciences within the framework of a business education.

Program features

Students in the program take BFS seminars in Wharton and in the College of Arts & Sciences, and engage in a significant senior research project (waived if doing one for a joint or dual-degree program). A full description of the JWS program and its requirements can be found here.


JWS-ers participate in a variety of activities that are academic, career-oriented, and social in nature.  


Students enrolled in the Wharton School who are selected for the Joseph Wharton Scholars Program are simultaneously designated Benjamin Franklin Scholars.
