Whittier is a college of academic rigor, where ideas are constantly being dissected, connected, and explored. Through an education that is rooted in the liberal arts tradition, Whittier offers more than 30 majors and minors across departments and interdisciplinary and pre-professional programs. Students can also create their own course of study through the Whittier Scholars Program.
Led by an enthusiastic faculty committed to the value of personal undergraduate education, students here are engaged in every level of their studies. Sophomores and seniors alike meet their professors head-on, defending their own ideas as they challenge one another's.
The College also provides academic experiences outside the classroom with student-faculty research and service-learning opportunities, hands-on internships, fieldwork, and study abroad.
The result is better preparation for the entire spectrum of careers, whether as a microbiologist or musician, physicist or philosopher.
