From St. John's College - Santa Fe

We are often called “the most contrarian college in America.” Or “the most rigorous college in America.” Or “the most intellectual college in America.” No matter how you define us, St. John’s College is unlike any other. Our students share a common curriculum, reading and discussing 200 of the greatest books in history. You learn directly from Plato, Austen, Einstein, Woolf, and Du Bois, to name a few. Instead of lectures and majors, classes are discussion-based exploring philosophy, literature, science, math, politics, and more. With a 7:1 student-to-faculty ratio, the college ranks #5 for best classroom experience and #9 for best undergraduate teaching. Our community has 1000 students on two campuses in Annapolis, Maryland, and Santa Fe, New Mexico. On the Santa Fe campus, in the Rocky Mountains, Johnnies embrace stunning views and rich cultural diversity while reading great books on the placita, hiking mountains, sculpting pottery, or socializing in the student-run coffee shop.

Majors

Great Books Program

The Great Books Program at St. John’s defies the conventional. No textbooks. Students read original writings of Plato, Shakespeare, Austen, Einstein, and Du Bois (to name a few). No majors. Students discover the connections between literature, science, philosophy, history, and more in a shared, common curriculum. No lectures. Every class is a discussion of great books with 20 students or fewer.
