About The Natural Science Department/Pitzer and Scripps College
The W.M. Keck Science Department serves as the integrated science department for Claremont McKenna, Pitzer, and Scripps Colleges and is administered cooperatively. Founded in 1964, the department is housed in the 81,000 square-foot W.M. Keck Science Center, physically located at the intersection of the three sponsor schools. Pitzer and Scripps Colleges are currently constructing an addition to the Science Center, which will nearly double its size. The building addition is scheduled to be open for the Fall 2024 semester. The department has a multidisciplinary structure in which approximately 50 full-time faculty cooperate in offering a challenging curriculum that includes interdisciplinary study and research.
