A Scripps education is holistic and comprehensive. Our modern approach to the liberal arts provides you with tangible and flexible skills, encouraging you to think deeply, communicate thoughtfully, and solve problems creatively.
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 your undergraduate studies, when you’ll engage in deep exploration of a chosen topic, conduct independent research, develop detailed analyses, and present your 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.
