Wisdom to Change Your Life
Study foundational works of literature, theology, and philosophy in small, seminar-style classes. Students consider the messy questions that contemporary disciplines often set aside, exploring the connections between what we know, how we live, and what we enjoy.
Discover the life of the mind. Get beyond secondary treatments and go straight to the primary texts. Encounter the greatest minds of human history.
Challenge yourself with stimulating reading and lively Socratic-style seminars. Find information about new courses, offered by some of Baylor's best teachers.
"Studying Great Texts has provided me with knowledge beyond the traditional classroom."
"The Great Texts Program provides that distinctive combination of personal encounter and intellectual apprenticeship by considering the most important questions about how we live. This is why Baylor engineering students, for example, study Great Texts."
"Great Texts is one of the few places I have found at Baylor that asks the hard questions about God, about the self, and about the world. Our professors guide us through texts, which remind us that we are not the first people to ask these questions. Being a part of this program has shown me that I am not in my own moment. We are inheriting and inhabiting an existing tradition."
