Experience an intellectually challenging academic journey in a supportive community where undergraduate research is a priority and classes are purposefully small. Advance your analytic and reasoning skills through discussion, debate, and the pursuit of knowledge.
Your Scripps education begins with Core, our signature, three-semester, interdisciplinary program that provides a common academic experience for all students. The required senior thesis or project marks the culmination of students’ undergraduate studies, where students engage in deep exploration of a chosen topic, conducting independent research, develop detailed analyses, and present their conclusions on Capstone Day.
At the heart of your Scripps education is our remarkable faculty of distinguished teachers, accomplished scholars and researchers, and leaders in their fields, who are engaged, accessible, and committed to your success. Like many Scripps students, you will develop friendships and professional relationships with your professors that continue well beyond graduation.
