LEAVE YOUR TEXTBOOK BEHIND.
In order to develop the best students possible, they must study the best works available.
For this reason, CreatEd Institute replaces contemporary college textbooks with a modified “Great Books” curriculum combined with an in-depth study of the Bible.
While textbooks come and go, the Great Books are the literary, scientific, political, and social classics which have stood the test of time and have proven to have had the greatest impact on civilization, and on our understanding of human nature and the meaning of life.
CreatEd Institute replaces contemporary college textbooks with a modified “Great Books” curriculum…
We teach students to read the great literary classics as though they are listening to an extended lecture given by one of the most brilliant minds to ever live. By utilizing the Great Books, students learn directly from the original, authoritative source and are thereby in a much better position to critically assess the author’s message, rather than having the message interpreted through a textbook or professor.
For example, while studying political science, students may read such books as “The Republic” by Plato, “The Prince” by Machiavelli, and “The Federalist Papers” by Hamilton, Madison, and Jay. When studying economics, students may dive into the likes of Adam Smith’s “Wealth of Nations” or David Ricardo’s “Principles of Political Economy and Taxation.”
What makes CreatEd’s curriculum truly exceptional is the amount of time and emphasis placed on reading “The Greatest Book” – the Bible. The Bible is the blueprint for reality, and is therefore considered the ultimate authoritative source. Therefore, CreatEd students undergo a daily, communal study of the Bible, laying an essential foundation for studying the great literary classics.
