Scripps Research Graduate Program

2009 Graduates
Graduate students on the Scripps Florida campus are part of The Scripps Research Institute's Graduate Program, which offers doctoral degrees with an emphasis on chemistry, chemical biology and the biological sciences. First established in 1989, the Graduate Program is conducted simultaneously at The Scripps Research Institute's two campuses: La Jolla, California and Jupiter, Florida.

Scripps' Graduate Program is consistently rated in the top 10 graduate schools in America for chemistry and biology by U.S. News and World Report. In the most recent edition of the survey, the publication ranked The Scripps Research Institute's Graduate Program seventh overall in chemistry, with a ranking of third in the specialty of organic chemistry and fourth in the specialty of biochemistry. The program is also rated seventh overall in the biological sciences, with a ranking of ninth in the specialty of biochemistry/biophysics/structural biology.

Two Campuses, One Program

While The Scripps Research Institute and its Graduate Program are headquartered in La Jolla, CA, both campuses are equal in their unequivocal commitment to world-class biomedical research and unparalleled Ph.D. training. Graduate students on both campuses attend the same classes (some based in CA, some in FL) via state-of-the-art distance learning technology, including interactive live video and "smart boards." Students on both campuses have access to leading scientists and the most advanced technology and facilities available. Regardless of which campus you choose, you'll receive the same outstanding graduate education.
