Scripps College Top Questions

What are your classes like?


My classes have ranged in size from ~45 students to as small as 4 students. Generally, my classes are discussion based, so it's important to have done the reading and to be prepared to discuss the subject at hand. Scripps classes, sometimes even more so than classes at other of the Claremont consortium schools, can be very writing intensive, with a high level of expectation from professors. That said, I LOVE my classes. My professors know my name, and stop to chat when I run into them outside the class. They are passionate about what they teach, and it shows in the work they do. It infuses the classroom with energy and brings life and excitement to the classroom, even when we're studying texts from the third century!
