A Tale of Two Curricula:

'General Education at St. John’s College and the University of Chicago'

Brandon Shin at The Chicago Maroon.

" may come as a surprise that, following a reorganization in 1937, St. John’s [College, Annapolis] was once called 'the college where the ideals of this University [UChicago] come closest to being realized in actual practice' by The Maroon (then The Daily Maroon). In fact, the general education curriculum at St. John’s has its roots firmly planted in the Great Books movement cultivated at UChicago in the 1930s, and the ethos of its curriculum, unlike at UChicago, remains largely unchanged to this day."
