Gutenberg is an accredited, four-year liberal arts college, located near the University of Oregon in Eugene. Our curriculum is based on the Great Books, and our classes are discussion-based and intimate. Our goal is to promote critical thinking and historical awareness by providing a broad-based liberal education in an environment respectful of biblical Christianity.
Rather than giving long speeches, our professors lead moderated discussions.
Make sense of this confusing world by pursuing and scrutinizing your beliefs.
Our curriculum is based on the Great Books – the original influential texts of Western civilization.
Learn more than facts and figures; learn how to think critically.
Feel safe talking openly and honestly about politics, faith, and society.
Most classes have fewer than 12 students. Form close relationships with fellow truth seekers.
Man is a mystery. The mystery must be solved, and even if you spend your whole life attempting to solve it, do not say you have wasted your time. I occupy myself with this mystery, because
I want to be a man.
Because of the diversity of philosophers being taught, I came to suspect, and now can confirm, that Gutenberg offers something no other school could: the freedom to think and discover without fear of ridicule or ostracism.
Gutenberg has been an invasion of my life, an event that has colored my soul. The piece of paper with two certain initials [B.A.] on it will mean so little to me in comparison with the ‘sea-change’ that the cast of my life has taken. Gutenberg is not about the mind, but rather the soul. Thus, education is but a springboard to life, and Gutenberg seems to embrace this truth with a unique force.
I was forced to know what I believe and why, essentially, to start believing…to make my faith my own through my experiencing life and my increased understanding of the Bible.
What I thought was the best difference [between Gutenberg and other schools] was the tutors’ personal attention to the students. Also, the interaction between the upper and lower classmen. In short, I suppose, what I liked most about GC was the community I walked into…
At Gutenberg, we eschew the term "professor", preferring to call ourselves tutors. We try to help our students cultivate wisdom and goodness by pushing them to challenge their assumptions and love the truth. By listening and participating, we learn along with them.
You probably still have a few outstanding questions. Are we affordable? Can you get in? What can you even do with
a Liberal Arts education?
