Which Pitzer College Core Value Are You?

At Pitzer College, five core values distinguish our approach to education: Social Responsibility, Intercultural Understanding, Interdisciplinary Learning, Student Engagement, and Environmental Sustainability. The core values set Pitzer apart because our students utilize them to guide their educational explorations both in and out of the classroom. At Pitzer, the core values transform the classroom into a community, and the community into a classroom. Take the Quiz to find out which Core Value you embody!

Which Pitzer College Core Value Are You?

You got: Interdisciplinary Learning

Instead of being trained in a single academic area, Pitzer students develop multiple skills that prepare them effectively for the rapidly-changing job market they will enter after graduation. Students are taught to make immediate connections between academic disciplines and pursue all of their academic interests at once. Check out how Maddy engages with Interdisciplinary Learning every day in the video below!
