Liberal education mission
Students at this four-year school do not have to select a major. Instead they take a core curriculum centered around a interdisciplinary curriculum focusing on the great works of philosophy, literature, history, political science, theology, economics, music, mathematics, and the laboratory sciences. Classes are small and students here are encouraged to develop strong critical thinking skills.


This prestigious liberal arts college can trace its legacy all the way back to King William's School in the 1600s. The campus grew up with the development of historic Annapolis and it officially charted in 1784 as St. John's College. A sister campus opened in 1964 across the country in Santa Fe, New Mexico.
