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 through a combination of selective interviews and academic standing.
The syllabus focused on big problems and cultural crisis periods in history which had driven great thinkers to tackle fundamental questions. Emphasis was given to primary sources. Grades were not given.
