As one of the top liberal arts universities in the country, Occidental College is a premier school in Los Angeles, California to earn a bachelor or master’s degree for the brightest students of the nation. Students who attend Occidental often go on to be the leaders in their chosen fields…just ask Barack Obama.
Admissions are selective, with the use of transcripts, applications, and interviews to choose the best students in the country.
Occidental students study subjects such as Art History and the Visual Arts, Critical Theory and Social Justice, Group Language, Music, Theater, Sociology, Psychology, Cognitive Science, Diplomacy and World Affairs, Urban and Environmental Policy, and Film and Media Studies.
The class sizes are small, with the average class having fewer than 20 students. The ratio of students to professors is also small, allowing students to get the sort of personal attention that will allow them to excel.
The clubs and activities that make up the student life of Occidental College cater to the personal interest of its students. Students can socialize with their peers, but organizations like the student run radio station, TV station, campus newspaper, student senate, and glee club can also help students exercise their future ambitions.
