DescriptionWe offer students the opportunity to immerse themselves in deep study of great books written by some of the world’s most influential and original thinkers. Our students read classic texts like Homer’s Odyssey and Plato’s Republic alongside more modern works like Toni Morrison’s Beloved and Alison Bechdel’s Fun Home.

In Great Books students encounter different subjects, genres, and modes of inquiry. Each course is organized around a theme, like Freedom or Human Nature & Technology. Students read novels alongside philosophical treatises; they study law, politics, poems, works of history and autobiographies all in the same course. In addition, every course is team-taught by two professors to promote conversation and a diversity of views. Professors choose texts that will challenge and provoke you — books that might inspire or trouble you. Through these texts our students come to understand a good deal about themselves and the world they inhabit.
