Silicon Valley Program

Companies like eBay, Atlassian, and Intuit are as much about entrepreneurship as they are about technology, and individuals with a liberal arts education help to drive innovative cultures in this global hotspot. The mission of the Silicon Valley Program (SVP) is to provide students of the Claremont Colleges with an off-campus study alternative that marries the liberal arts to exciting challenges facing technology firms in Silicon Valley.
