The Bachelor of Arts
The Bachelor in English program is offered by William Jessup University, which is accredited by the WASC Senior College and University Commission, through an agreement with Saint Constantine. Students earn a degree from William Jessup University, Rocklin, California.
During the first two years of the Saint Constantine program, students complete their General Education units through our Great Texts core curriculum. Those wishing to continue their study of Great Texts at the upperclassmen level can continue on into our Bachelor of Arts program, where they study great writers—especially Plato, Dante, and Shakespeare—in tremendous depth, and are apprenticed in the research, writing, and dialectic required at the graduate level. The Bachelor of Arts culminates in a Senior Thesis, wherein the student conducts original research and produces a scholarly, article-length essay on a writer of their choice. Students who complete the Bachelor of Arts at Saint Constantine are equipped to go on to a wide range of careers and/or graduate school in education, law, the arts, the humanities, and more. Most importantly, they have dedicated their undergraduate years to the slow work of forming a humble soul, a virtuous character, and a discerning mind.
