Bachelor of Arts in Liberal Studies

Liberal Studies at Georgetown

A World-Class Education

Georgetown’s Bachelor of Arts in Liberal Studies program is not a one-size-fits-all curriculum; rather, it is a combination of many different programs of study. This interdisciplinary approach provides students with a comprehensive learning experience while helping them achieve intellectual advancement, enhanced critical thinking abilities, and a greater cultural understanding.

Rooted in Georgetown’s Jesuit values, the program prepares students to excel academically and professionally, equipping them with the tools they need to become successful leaders who are committed to serve others and make an impact on the world. Through an emphasis on educating the whole person, Georgetown provides students with a world-class education that teaches them the art of inquiry and innovation. Students learn advanced critical thinking while developing a deeper understanding of past and present human behavior—in all its interconnected complexity.


“I believe that a Georgetown education is priceless and that I will be even better prepared to meet tomorrow’s challenges with the strong liberal arts foundation that the BALS program provides.”

- Alan Murphy, Alumnus
