St. John’s College is the third oldest college in the United States (reportedly behind Harvard, established in 1636, and College of William and Mary in 1693).
At St. John’s, great books—and great discussions—are the heart of the college’s distinctive liberal arts program. Students are part of an intellectual community and investors in their own education, from conversations around the seminar table to those that take place beyond classroom walls. Inspired by some of history’s most brilliant philosophers, scientists, musicians and more, students push themselves to think deeply, discuss intensely, and live boldly. They leave St. John’s with a passion that ignites distinctive career paths—and their world.
