    504 Gateway Time-out

    According to the Annapolis Group, a consortium of 130 liberals arts colleges across the United States (including Luther), the liberal arts experience offers:

    • Intimate learning environments where extensive interaction between faculty, students, and staff fosters a community of serious discourse
    • Small class sizes that emphasize individualized instruction and have dedicated faculty
    • A way of learning that helps students understand, develop, and use their own intellectual resources
    • A process of growth that is focused on intellectual engagement which is deeply personal, highly communal, and grounded in the development of critical and analytical thinking
    • An atmosphere where students participate as fully in the greater campus community as they do in the classroom

    Luther’s Liberal Arts Curriculum

    At Luther, we uniquely embrace the liberal arts through our curriculum generally, and specifically through our signature Paideia program


    study off campus through dozens of programs that span the globe from Cambodia to New Zealand to Tanzania and beyond.

    In addition, our January Term

    study-away programs. All Luther students are required to take at least two January-term courses—First-Year Seminars and January Term 2—but most Luther students participate in J-term all four years.

    The liberal arts foundation that students build at Luther will help them develop academically, professionally, socially, and personally throughout their lives.
