About the College

One of the most selective colleges in the country, Deep Springs College educates and provides full scholarships for 30 students. Isolated in California’s Eastern Sierra, Deep Springs prepares students for a life of service by uniting rigorous academics, student body self-governance, and ranch labor. The college’s small size allows professors to work closely with dedicated students both inside and outside the classroom. Faculty are encouraged to solicit student participation in their work, or to work with them to design projects of mutual interest. The student-to-faculty ratio is around four to one, and most classes have fewer than ten students.

All teaching and staff appointments include room and board for professors and their families, some relocation expenses, and library book-purchase funds. Short-term faculty and staff do not receive retirement benefits or medical insurance.
