Message from the Associate Dean
Invest in You; Become a Lifelong Learner
Welcome to Georgetown University and the Bachelor of Arts in Liberal Studies program. Our program provides a stimulating and challenging intellectual adventure for students, just like you, who are seeking deeper knowledge, sharper critical thinking and improved communication skills – all prerequisites for making more significant contributions to society.
The Bachelor of Arts in Liberal Studies program rests on the beliefs that all human life and human action have meaning and that people, throughout their lives, must seek it out and live by its implications. The program's liberal studies courses – which engage students in reading, reflection, writing and discussion – are meant to bring students the range of knowledge and vision that leads to wise and rewarding lives.
Specifically designed to meet the unique needs of working adults, all of the program's classes are held in the evenings and on Saturdays, enabling you to complete your degree with minimal impact on your work schedule. And because our program caters to professionals, there is no shortage of sharable life experiences and perspectives – all adding to our program's rich learning environment.
Our program's alumni – time and time again – say they immediately benefit from the prestige afforded by a degree from Georgetown University, joining such leaders as Bill Clinton and U.S. Supreme Court Justice Antonin Scalia – our honored graduates – in the pursuit of scholarship and lifelong learning.
We hope, as an adult student with much to offer our Bachelor of Arts in Liberal Studies program, you'll take your next educational journey with us. We look forward to having you join the growing list of Georgetown University leaders and scholars who are making a difference in the world.
John Dolan, Ph.D.
