About the College and Community:
Deep Springs educates and provides full scholarships to 27 students. Isolated in California’s Eastern Sierra, Deep Springs emphasizes a life of service by uniting a rigorous liberal arts curriculum with student body self-governance and intensive labor on the college’s farm and ranch. During each fourteen week semester (September–December & January–April), as well as a seven week term (May-June), the college hosts two or three visiting scholars who each teach one class. Professors are provided room and board, and work closely with students both in and out of the classroom. The student-to-faculty ratio is around four to one, and classes rarely have over ten students.

Deep Springs is the most alive place that I have ever taught. It’s a place where you’ll meet questing, adventurous students, students who have taken the risk of departing from the mainstream to live in an intentional way in a thoughtful community. In my twenty years of teaching– at USC, Harvard, Brown, and many other places– I have never encountered such a concentration of iconoclastic thinkers.

– Brighde Mullins Playwright, Director of Masters of Professional Writing Program, USC and Visiting Professor, Deep Springs College

What sets Deep Springs students apart from students…is their unwavering dedication to the intellectual enterprise. Unconcerned with grades, students here are eager to explore ideas for their own sake, and discussion rarely ends when the group adjourns. Classes are very small and quickly take on the depth and intensity of graduate seminars, which makes teaching at Deep Springs not only a deeply rewarding experience, but a genuine pleasure

– Stefan Sperling PhD Princeton University, JD Stanford University, Visiting Professor, Deep Springs College
