Great books at the heart of an NSA education
New Saint Andrews College has adopted the following list of readings as a requirement for the Bachelor of Arts degree in Liberal Arts and Culture. The College is committed to assigning each of these works throughout the various colloquia which are required for graduation. These particular works have been selected because, as a set, they adequately introduce to our students the basic cultural output of the West. This is not a comprehensive list of all the readings assigned in our colloquia. Our instructors assign many readings in addition to these for practical and pedagogical reasons. Of course, there are many other great works that are not required reading at New Saint Andrews. These we hope our students will pursue after they graduate, for there is no end to a listing of great books, and learning from books is a lifelong activity.
