Monticello College seeks input in order to add Masters degree in Natural Law

See also

Tiny Monticello College in Monticello, Utah is seeking to add a Masters degree in Natural Law to their curriculum. However, the state of Utah requires that the school demonstrate a significant level of public interest before being permitted to begin this degree program. Natural law is the premise that there are laws higher than man-made laws, "self-evident truths", as Thomas Jefferson stated in the Declaration of Independence. These laws are considered to be the basis of an individual's and a society's freedoms. The founders of America were all students of natural law and its effects upon governments throughout history.

The proposed course of study for the Masters degree would involve six semesters of reading, discussing and writing about natural law in the Greek, Hebrew, Roman, medieval, British and American traditions and institutions. Students would read works by Plato, Aristotle, Cervantes, Shakespeare, Solzhenitsyn and many others. The final semester would be devoted to the completion of two major research papers applying natural law to current events. Classes would be small and directed by dedicated mentors.

College president Dr. Shanon Brooks is requesting that anyone interested in taking some or all of the program's courses, or who has students that might be interested, or who feels that such a program would be beneficial to the American public contact him with their comments.

The mission of Monticello College is to educate a generation of New American Founders, who are prepared to promote freedom and Constitutional government.
