To Major or Not to Major?

We at San Elijo College have been deeply influenced by Newman's Idea of a University which lays out an integrated general education program coupled with specific areas of emphasis or majors.

We are convinced that higher education should be classically oriented with a focus on the great works of the western tradition. We also recognize that the specific disciplines within the academy bring an important strength to undergraduate study.

At San Elijo College, we intend to have a single degree program in Liberal Arts with a unified curriculum, while allowing for the specific strengths of our faculties' expertise to compliment the unity of our degree program.

Can we call this a "major" in Liberal Arts? Maybe. However, we intend to offer more than a mere major. We offer the art of being free for well being and well doing.
