The Master of Arts in Liberal Studies program is designed to provide an alternative approach to continuing education within the field of liberal studies. Its distinctive feature consists in its core course offerings, which are interdisciplinary in nature.
The program is designed for those adult students with bachelor’s degrees who wish to broaden their knowledge of the liberal arts in an integrated graduate-level course of studies and who have an interest in the values of human cultures and societies.
