About the Basic Program of Liberal Education for Adults 

The Basic Program offers a rigorous, noncredit liberal arts curriculum that draws on the strong Socratic tradition of the University of Chicago. There are no tests or papers; instead, we discover, discuss, and disagree about the foundational texts of Western literature, politics, and social thought. Come join the conversation!
