TheLyceum Summer Program
for high school students
at Clemson University

Dear Educator,

Because of the overwhelming response to our Great Books approach to studying the moral, political and economic foundations of a free society, we are excited toextend thisLyceum learning experience to high school students in the 10th-12th grades. Thisweek-longLyceum Summer Program is part of theSummer Scholars
atClemson University.Our summer session,'Leadership and the Case for Greatness', takes directly from the Lyceum Curriculum the question of what role virtue and prudence play in the development of great leaders.



More Information

What will Students Study?

Students will explore leadership, prudence, and greatness through an examination of political thought and historical figures. For example, they will study Lincoln’s greatest speeches and ask: was he great because he was a prudent statesman or was he was a prudent statesman because he was great? Lyceum professors will guide students through the interplay between greatness and ambition, principles and political contexts, and leadership and education.

These sessions are ideal for students interested in politics, history, ethics and for those who wish to serve their communities.
