A Focus on Great Books, Not Textbooks

Tim Pratt interviews John Felis, a student in the St. John’s College Graduate Institute in Annapolis.
"'I don’t have to write 10 papers about stuff I don’t care about,' he says. 'That’s work; that’s laboring. Here, there’s this freedom.'

"Readings for the curriculum are organized into five segments: Literature; Politics and Society; Philosophy and Theology; Mathematics and Natural Science; and History. Students must complete four of the five segments—36 semester credit hours—to earn the Master of Arts in Liberal Arts degree. Work is completed in seminars, tutorials and preceptorials."
