Gutenberg College is pleased to introduce a new study program in 2014: the Caps Program. This program requires graduate level academic work, but it is unaccredited, and the course work is unlikely to be recognized by any accredited institution. The Caps Program could be interesting to two kinds of people: (1) those who want to pursue a graduate level education in one of the disciplines listed below; and (2) those who want to take advantage of the educational opportunities (individual courses) offered in conjunction with these programs. A complete description of the Caps Program is available here.
Caps Program Disciplines:
- Music History
- Philosophy of Science
- New Testament in English
- New Testament in Greek
- Old Testament Exegesis
- New Testament Greek

Gutenberg College’s tuition for 2014-2015 is $12,000–an affordable cost for a quality education. Financial aid is also available, which Admissions Director Tim McIntosh explains. It’s time to apply for fall 2015. See Gutenberg’s online catalog for details.
Audio MP3s of Ron Julian’s four-part series “Issues in Biblical Interpretation” are now available to download in the audio section of the Gutenberg website and from Gutenberg’s iTunes U site. Ron taught the series in 1990 as part of McKenzie Study Center’s Biblical Worldview Program. McKenzie Study Center is now an institute of Gutenberg College.
Ron Julian is the author of Righteous Sinners, and a co-author of The Language of God: A Commonsense Approach to Understanding and Applying the Bible. For other articles and talks by Ron Julian, go to his author page on the Gutenberg website.
“Truth Detectors” by Gutenberg tutor Chris Swanson is now available in our articles section. Andrew Kern of the Circe Institute commented on Facebook: “This is one of the better brief articles I have read on epistemology, and it never uses the word epistemology! Maybe that’s why. It is very, very clear. Read it and learn more about Gutenberg College while you’re at it.”
Chris Swanson has been a tutor at Gutenberg College since it opened its doors in 1994. He has a Ph.D. in physics and has done post-doctoral research at the University of Oregon. You can find more articles and talks by Dr. Swanson here.
