St. John’s distinctive liberal arts curriculum and educational practices have long given it a highly respected place among American colleges and universities. Its strong commitment to collaborative inquiry and to the study of original texts makes St. John’s College a particularly vibrant community of learning. Through close engagement with the works of some of the world’s greatest writers and thinkers—from Homer, Plato, and Euclid to Nietzsche, Einstein, and Woolf—students at St. John’s College grapple with fundamental questions that confront us as human beings. As they participate in lively discussions and throw themselves into the activity of translating, writing, demonstrating, conducting experiments, and analyzing musical compositions, St. John’s students learn to speak articulately, read attentively, reason effectively, and think creatively.
St. John’s is one college with two spectacular campuses—one in Annapolis, Maryland, and one in Santa Fe, New Mexico. Students enrolled at either campus can transfer to the other and many students choose to spend a year at the other campus. Both campuses are beautifully situated in historic state capitals: Santa Fe hugs the slopes of the Sangre de Cristo Mountains in Northern New Mexico, while Annapolis lies on the shores of College Creek, a tributary of the Chesapeake Bay in Maryland. The two campuses share the same interdisciplinary academic program, while offering a broad range of opportunities and experiences.
