The New College Liberal Arts program is for those who wish to learn how to think, not what to think. The great ideas covered in this program have been the foundation of dynamic, independent thinking for millennia. Come join us in learning the wisdom of the ages.

New College of Florida debuted a version of its liberal arts degree in Spring 2024 that features classes offered through distance learning, supported by live video-conferencing seminars and discussion groups so that it is accessible to students everywhere. The liberal arts curriculum spans the period from Ancient Greece to the modern age, and planned program outcomes include a four-year bachelor’s degree, a two-year associate degree, and a one-year certificate.

After completing their A.A. degree, students have the option of continuing as distance education students to a B.A. degree or finishing their studies as New College’s beautiful Sarasota Bay campus to combine their Great Books studies with other academic programs offered by the college. All students earning a degree will be invited to attend New College’s traditional May graduation ceremony.
