Enduring Questions sections allow face-to-face learning, with no more than 19 students per section.
Enduring Questions is a course that every Luther student takes in his or her first year. This common element is vital—all sections share a syllabus. Throughout the year, all Luther first-year students read the same works (though the class assignments related to the works may vary). The best class discussions extend into residence halls and cafeteria tables.
Enduring Questions—a two-semester course taught by faculty from every academic division—studies works drawn from across the disciplines. The course provides a base of skills you will use throughout your college experience.
It models the ideals of the liberal arts because:
Pay attention in Paideia and learn how to write. It doesn't matter if you're a newspaper reporter, a lawyer, a doctor, or an accountant. Being able to convey your thoughts in an organized and thoughtful way will always serve you well in both your personal and professional life.
