Arts One books (2006)

Arts One has two independent groups each with its own theme, a maximum of a hundred students, and a teaching team of five faculty members.

Each Group meets as a whole once a week for a two-hour lecture. Groups then divide into seminars, consisting of a faculty member and no more than twenty students. These meet twice a week for an hour and a half to discuss issues arising from the texts. Each seminar then divides into tutorial groups of four, meeting with the instructor once a week for an hour. In tutorials the focus is on the students’ written work.

On a typical week, students will read a literary, philosophical, or historical text, attend a lecture, participate in two seminars, write and submit an essay, and attend a tutorial to discuss their work. At the end of the year, they write a final examination.
