Gutenberg College is a classical “Great Books” college. Great Books colleges offer a broad-based liberal arts education with a curriculum centered on reading and discussing those writings that have been most significant in the formation of Western culture. Taken together, these writings constitute a “Great Conversation.” Through several centuries of this extended conversation the most important issues facing mankind surface time after time: Who is man? Who is God? What is the relationship between them? How ought one live one’s life? Studying the writings of the foremost thinkers of our culture gives students the opportunity to examine different perspectives on these important questions. In a sense, students learn at the feet of great thinkers.
Like other Great Books colleges, then, Gutenberg College’s curriculum centers around the discussion, in small groups, of these consequential works.
