Primary Texts Certificate
"Supposing is good,
but finding out is better."
-Mark Twain in Eruption; Mark Twain's Autobiography
Earn a Certificate in the Study of Arts and Sciences Through Primary Texts while fulfilling some of your basic requirements in Arts and Sciences (or just to enrich your educational experience). Students take courses emphasizing original works instead of textbooks. For example, instead of reading only a textbook in Physics, read selections from Galileo and Einstein, too. Instead of an American Government textbook as your main source, read Madison, Hamilton and Jay. Graduate with a certificate that shows you've been exposed to some of the greatest books in the humanities, sciences and social sciences.
