Tussman Experimental College

Tussman Experimental College

The Tussman Experimental College was an American educational project at the University of California, Berkeley that lasted from 1965 to 1969.

Founded by philosophy professor Joseph Tussman, about 300 students were chosen at random to participate.

The syllabus focused on big problems and cultural crisis periods in history which had driven great thinkers to tackle fundamental questions. Grades were not given.

The project was inspired by the Experimental College at the University of Wisconsin founded by Alexander Meiklejohn.
