Shimer College

  • (312) 235-3500 | Website


At Shimer, you won̠t touch a textbook. Our curriculum is built entirely on primary sources, and there are no lectures: only student-driven conversation. Shimer is the only Great Books school to include in its core curriculum major contemporary, feminist, and subaltern figures like Judith Butler, Luce Irigaray, and Frederick Douglass. If you love to read and write, if you̠re curious and interested in ideas, Shimer might be the place for you. Here, we̠ll teach you not what to think, but how to think.
