BA Liberal Arts Curriculum


Monticello College stands on the belief that the original American Founder leadership was the product of a particular educational system, known to the great leaders of the past, but mostly lost to modern academia. It is a principle-centered process grounded in the belief in God and immutable moral law, framed on the classics of literature, history, science, the arts, and philosophy while crowned in the discipline of real-world application under the guidance of committed and caring mentors.
