Academics at Scripps College:
Scripps students work with a faculty of distinguished teachers, scholars, and researchers who believe their first responsibility is to stimulate and support undergraduate learning. Innovation, energy, availability, and commitment to students and the college community set the Scripps faculty apart. Seminar-style classes ensure students find it easy to share ideas in a supportive, interactive atmosphere. Since the ratio of students to faculty is 11 to one and the average class size is 17, students are vital participants, not just faces in a vast lecture hall. Classes are taught only by professors, never by teaching assistants or graduate students.
Scripps College is accredited by the Accrediting Commission for Senior Colleges and Universities of the Western Association of Schools and Colleges.
As the cornerstone of Scripps' academic program, the Core Curriculum in Interdisciplinary Humanities challenges Scripps women not only to think, but to think about the way they think. The Core looks at the many relationships between culture and knowledge and between knowledge and representation within the arts, sciences, social sciences, and humane letters.
