Deep Springs College Faculty Opportunities

Program Summary

Located on a cattle ranch in California just east of the Sierra Nevada mountains, Deep Springs prepares a select group of twenty-six young men (avg. SAT 1500) for lives of service to humanity. Practical labor and student self-government complement the demanding liberal arts curriculum. After two years, students transfer to highly competitive universities (such as Berkeley, Cornell, Harvard, Swarthmore, and Yale) to complete their undergraduate studies. Visiting Scholars normally teach one course over a fourteen-week semester, allowing ideal time for writing and study in the solitude and beauty of the valley. Most courses consist of about six students in a seminar-style format. Classroom work tends to be intense, vibrant, and stimulating with bright, motivated students actively participating in their education to an extent seen nowhere else.


Professors on sabbatical, artists-in-residence, and post-doc teaching fellows are encouraged to apply for the 7 or 14 week-long teaching posts.
