In the Classroom

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.

"I found the faculty to be the most amazing part of the program. All of my professors were great teachers, always effective, energetic, and passionate about teaching. They always made themselves available for extra help and were committed to seeing us succeed. I enjoyed all of my classes immensely."
