Liberal Studies program is designed to provide students who have attained the bachelor’s degree the opportunity to study modern Western society, culture, and thought through an intensive interdisciplinary examination of their origins and through comparison with other societies and cultures. The curriculum provides students with an integrated, sequential exploration of central works and topics in the liberal arts. The major focus is on the social sciences and humanities with attention paid to the development and impact of scientific thought and technological developments. There are seven required courses, two electives, and a master’s essay.
Consisting of 30 credits and structured to facilitate the completion of all coursework in two years, students are required to take two courses in the Liberal Studies sequence during each of four semesters. In addition they are encouraged to enroll in one elective course during a summer term and one during their fourth semester in the program.
All of the courses in the program focus on the study and analysis of key theoretical and artistic works created during the periods under study. Those works are studied in their own right as major intellectual statements, in their historic context as representative of major intellectual movements, and as potential sources of insight to an understanding of contemporary problems and issues.
The program holds full membership in and is accredited by the Association of Graduate Liberal Studies Programs.
