All College

OSV News Agency logoIn a back-to-school spirit, Paul Senz at Our Sunday Visitor has dedicated a new article to understanding the Great Books approach to education that has come to define several Catholic colleges over the last 50 years, Thomas Aquinas College chief among them.

Students at the College take part in that conversation not only by reading the books, but by engaging with them using the Discussion Method. “At TAC, I am constantly challenged to understand the arguments made by great authors and then apply their conclusions,” says Claire Thomas, a senior on the California campus. “My classes are never boring.”
