Today, Pitzer enrolls approximately 1,000 students in more than 40 fields of study leading to the bachelor of arts degree. Some of the more popular concentrations are psychology, sociology, political studies, media studies, environmental studies and art.Students continue to create their own academic programs in close collaboration with faculty advisers. There are no formal lists of requirements at the College; rather, students are guided by a unique set of six educational objectives: Breadth of Knowledge; Understanding in Depth; Critical Thinking, Formal Analysis and Effective Expression; Interdisciplinary Perspective; Intercultural Understanding; and Concern with Social Responsibility and the Ethical Implications of Knowledge and Action.In keeping with its distinctive heritage, Pitzer remains dedicated to individual growth while building community. Students are expected to engage in community service learning, and the campus is now a leader in sustainability, intercultural understanding and global study and inquiry.Students of ethnically diverse backgrounds come from all parts of the United States, as well as from nearly 20 other countries to attend Pitzer College. In addition to learning from one another, students are encouraged to participate in one of Pitzer's study abroad and international programs. Pitzer challenges students to develop a set of courses that will expose and engage them with issues from the perspective of at least two cultures and two disciplines. Students are also invited to take advantage of the many other Claremont resources that enrich and strengthen their appreciation of global diversity.
