St John’s College Ramsay Postgraduate Scholarship
You should be prepared for a world-class education that will challenge you to think like some of history’s most brilliant philosophers, poets, and scientists. St. John’s College in Annapolis, Maryland, is committed to restoring the original concept of liberal education through the “great books.” These books are the most important teachers because they express the ideas that govern modern life, knowingly or unknowingly, in the most original and often perfect way.
Up to six Australians are supported each year by the Ramsay Scholarship to:
- pursue a Master of Arts in Liberal Arts at St John’s, focusing on great books of the Western canon
- participate in an internship programme in an area of interest in Washington, D.C.
St. John’s College
St. John’s education aims to liberate the human intellect. Students and teachers learn from their differences and discover more deeply their shared humanity by reading great books and grappling with the fundamental questions they raise. Thanks to conversations around the seminar table and beyond, students leave St. John’s intelligently and critically appreciative of their common heritage and well-equipped to master the specific skills of any call.
St. John’s College is a private liberal arts college in Annapolis, Maryland, and Santa Fe, New Mexico. St. John’s is one of the country’s oldest institutions of higher learning. The college’s graduate institute offers two master’s degrees: one in liberal arts, which is a modified version of the undergraduate curriculum (the main difference being that graduate students are not restricted to a set sequence of courses), and one in Eastern Classics.
