Students at St. John’s study the liberal arts—from literature and philosophy to math, science, ancient Greek, and more—in a holistic curriculum without any majors. There are no textbooks; instead, we rely on the original word of the greatest thinkers in Western civilization. Whether it’s Aristotle or Aquinas, the authors are the true professors. St. John’s has two campuses: one in Annapolis, Maryland, and the other in Santa Fe, New Mexico. Both campuses share the same curriculum in two different settings. In Annapolis, you’ll study among cobblestone streets and the Chesapeake Bay, just miles from Washington, DC. No matter the campus, the intellectual culture of St. John’s permeates the college.
