Deep Springs College is an alternative liberal arts college in Deep Springs, California. The institution currently has a student body size of 26. Each student attends for two years and receives a full scholarship valued at over $50,000 per year. Afterwards, most of them continue their studies at other universities.
In addition to studies, students work a minimum of 20 hours a week either on the ranch and farm attached to the college or in positions related to the college and community. Position titles have historically included cook, irrigator, butcher, groundskeeper, cowboy, "office cowboy," dairy, and feedman.
Unlike most colleges, students design the curriculum and select the professors. Public speaking and composition are the only two required courses. The curriculum includes introductory courses and specialized courses rarely provided at the freshman and sophomore level at other institutions. Students typically develop their academic interests during one-on-one conversations with their instructors.
