The Jefferson Scholars Program is a new, interdisciplinary program in the great books for highly motivated freshmen and sophomores in every college and major of the University. Taught by stellar faculty, often in small classes, and including extensive opportunities for discussion and practice in writing, it offers a way to meet UT core requirements while engaging in a sustained inquiry into fundamental questions and debates that have driven human history.
