Curriculum: A Firm Foundation In History, Economics, Literature, Science, Mathematics and the Arts Through Reality Oriented Philosophy
The College of the United States
Instructing individuals in the broad knowledge and rational powers that will enable them to succeed in life – this is the fundamental principle of our curriculum. The curriculum will cover all traditional subjects and more, in an original way. The principle components of the curriculum methodology are:
- A comprehensive required course of study integrated by philosophy.
- Reading primary source works of intellectual giants – the Great Books approach to learning.
- Relating fields of study and putting them in the context of human knowledge and its history through dramatic narratives – an adult version of the Montessori Great Lessons concept.
- Practicums tightly integrated with studies and the development of leadership skills well-grounded in the principles of rational individualism. The curriculum will emphasize the mastery of facts and ideas, their role and power through history, relating them constantly to the theoretical and the practical.
Initially, the College will offer a Baccalaureate degree in Liberal Arts. The curriculum will be unified, in-depth and extensive, addressing essential needs for training in thinking and practical skills, as well as a solid and firm foundation in reality-oriented philosophical issues in history, economics, literature, mathematics and science.
"The hallmark of a well-functioning mind is the ability to identify facts, analyze ideas, integrate knowledge, and successfully translate principles into action."
