These multipurpose accoutrements belong to the ladies and gents in “Steampunk Physics,” a new class in which Scott Calvin (physics) leads a return to “citizen science”—teaching students the history of 19th-century physics and how to make their own machines.
Welcome to Sarah Lawrence
Sarah Lawrence’s highly intellectual, rigorous curriculum is world-renowned and one of a kind.
At Sarah Lawrence, you’ll work one-on-one with our top-ranked professors to design a unique academic program shaped by your intellect and individual interests.
Classes are small (averaging 12 students), and the 10:1 student-to-teacher ratio drops to 1:1 every other week for private conferences with your professors.
That’s right: Every Sarah Lawrence student works one-on-one with faculty on original writing and research every semester of every year.
Sarah Lawrence’s vibrant intellectual community and stunning campus are only a brief train ride away from the abundant resources of New York City.
If you’re ready for a distinctive, life-changing college experience, you're ready to apply to Sarah Lawrence.
