Academic Experience


A Scripps education begins with the Core Curriculum in Interdisciplinary Humanities, the College’s signature, interdisciplinary approach to learning, and concludes with the required senior thesis or project.


Core is a three-semester interdisciplinary program that provides a common academic experience for all students.

Courses of Study/Majors

Students can explore 50 majors available on the Scripps campus and more through The Claremont Colleges.

Senior Thesis

Students work closely with advising professors on their research paper, project, or performance.

Study Abroad and Global Education

Students are encouraged to transform their classroom learning into action through our study abroad program, research with faculty, and internship opportunities.

Study Abroad and Global Education

A unique academic opportunity where Scripps students can extend the critical inquiries begun in the classroom to a semester of learning in one of more than 40 countries.

Student Fellowships and Scholarships

More than 86% of Scripps students have held at least one internship, a critical form of experiential learning outside the classroom.
