Simplify life. Fire up the mind. Let the heart teach the hands and the hands teach the head. Every autumn since 1975, several dozen college students from across the country have taken a step “out of the current” for an unusual semester of vigorous intellectual exploration. Students earn 17 credits (4.25 Gustavus units), but focus on one topic of study at a time. Daily reading, small group discussion, and one-on-one conversations with faculty members comprise the heart of the OE program.
Core courses proceed one-at-a-time and include:
- What Is Nature? (1 Gustavus unit)
- What Is Community? (0.75 Gustavus units)
- What Is a Sustainable World? (0.75 Gustavus units)
- What Does It Mean to Be Human? (0.75 Gustavus units)
- Composition and Rhetoric (0.75 Gustavus units)
- Wilderness Recreation (0.25 Gustavus units)
