Academic Programs

A Liberal Arts Education

A true liberal arts college, St. John’s College is first and foremost a community of learning. At its heart is a liberal arts curriculum that is conceived as a coherent program of study, which immerses students in reading great books and in lively and unmediated conversation with one another and with the books themselves. Every part of the Program aims to raise essential questions that give rise to sustained and thoughtful discussion and inquiry. The more comprehensive perspective of the seminar is balanced and supported by the more detailed work and technical activities of the tutorials: in these classes, students study language, mathematics, science, and music. Through active involvement in all aspects of their learning, students at St. John’s College discover that the books they study speak not only to one another, but to us and to contemporary concerns.
