In the Classroom
With faculty from all of the science disciplines teaching a diverse group of students, this joint department fosters a passion for science, ensures an immersion in interdisciplinary perspectives, and provides students with individual attention and excellent resources. Scripps Post-Bac students benefit, in particular, from the diverse student body and the dedicated and creative faculty. Classes are taken with undergraduates of Scripps, Pitzer, and Claremont McKenna Colleges.
- the integrated class setting fosters a sense of community and creates a non-competitive atmosphere
- all classes are taught by faculty
- class size averages 30 for lectures and 15 for labs
- each year, about 17 Post-Bac students are enrolled
"I loved that my classes included both post-bac students and undergraduates. The undergraduates at the Claremont Colleges are intelligent and goal-oriented. Working with them on group projects and in labs enriched my time at Scripps."
