Academic Enrichment

Caltech provides students with a breadth of academic options to customize and enhance their education.

For Undergraduate Students

Premed opportunities include rotations at City of Hope, Children's Hospital Los Angeles, UCLA Medical Center, and Huntington Memorial Hospital.

Air Force and Army ROTC programs are offered in partnership with USC.

A 3/2 dual degree is available to outstanding students from 13 select liberal-arts colleges.

Caltech students can cross-register at Occidental College and Art Center College of Design for classes Caltech doesn't offer, and receive Caltech credit.

Caltech students can also study abroad in Cambridge, London, Edinburgh, Copenhagen, Paris, or Melbourne during their junior or senior years as part of Caltech's Scholars Programs.

For Graduate Students

MD-PhD programs are available to Caltech grad students; these programs aim to train doctors who will also have extraordinary scientific expertise.

Visiting graduate students are able to join Caltech classes and/or research groups while enrolled at or on sabbatical from another university.

Caltech students can conduct thesis research and receive credit for graduate courses at the Scripps Institution of Oceanography at UCSD through an exchange program.

Students who want to progress academically while still fulfilling work or other responsibilities may be eligible for Caltech's part-time degree program.
