About the program:

Open to incoming freshmen, the Lyceum Program, a JMC partner program, is the first college program in the United States to use a Great Books approach to studying liberty, capitalism, the American Founding, and moral character. All Lyceum Scholars are assigned faculty “Socratic Tutors” who guide their intellectual development for their entire four-year education. The Program draws inspiration from the Lyceum School founded by Aristotle in ancient Greece. Lyceum Scholars study the moral principles of a free society, the political ideals of the American Founding and the economic foundations of capitalism.
