St. 约翰的 Undergraduate Program

At the heart of St. 约翰的 is a liberal arts curriculum focused on reading 和 discussing many of the greatest books 和 most important questions in 历史. This is perhaps the most distinctive undergraduate curriculum of any college in America. Our students read the original writings of great thinkers across 3,000 years of 历史, engage in vigorous classroom discussion with fewer than 20 students around the seminar table, 和 study interdisciplinary ideas across the humanities 和 sciences without limiting students to the restrictions of siloed majors. Read about the program in the words of our faculty, 和 learn about the reading list, subjects, 和 classes below.
