Since MLA students are not affiliated with any particular department, you should use the College of Liberal and Professional Studies as your home base at the University. Although you are encouraged both to seek academic advice from faculty members with whom you study and to forge an intellectual relationship with a faculty mentor, LPS staff will provide administrative support for you relating to such issues as admissions, registration, monitoring of graduation requirements, and advising during your stay at Penn.

Office Location

The LPS office is located on the first floor of the University Science Center at 3440 Market Street (the first building on the southwest corner of 34th and Market Streets).

Office Hours

  • Monday, Tuesday, Thursday, Friday - 9:00am to 5:00pm
  • Wednesday - 9:00am to 6:00pm

    The office is closed on Saturdays and Sundays.
