Integral Liberal Arts

What is the Integral Program?

Based upon the Great Books Program begun at the University of Chicago, the Integral Liberal Arts Program (commonly called the Integral Program) at Saint Mary's College offers an opportunity for students to study and explore in depth the great writings of western and eastern civilization and to discuss with other students and faculty the timeless questions which arise from these writings. The program's Reading List gives the complete plan for the all four years of the Integral major.

The addition of works in electronic format for the authors on this page is in a constant state of change. Every attempt has been and is being made to provide an adequate translation of the minimal required texts for the Program.
