Who are we?

Questions like these are part of the daily routine for students pursuing the Bachelor of Arts in Great Texts of the Western Tradition.

Read foundational works of literature, politics, theology, and philosophy -- from Antiquity to the present -- in small, dynamic, seminar-style classes. Study masterworks in drama, music, and art. Engage important scientific writers of the past and present.

By cultivating disciplined thnking, as well as excellent writing and interpretation skills, Great Texts prepares students to compete for prestigious international fellowships and gain admittance to the very best medical, law, and humanities graduate schools.
