The Master of Arts in Liberal Studies is an interdisciplinary program designed to build skills in problem-solving and critical thinking. By taking a range of courses in the social sciences, humanities, and sciences within the context of larger global connections, students gain varied insights into the relationship between individuals and larger social structures in regard to topics such as religion, government, and gender in societies both past and present. To do so, the curriculum introduces and expands student knowledge in methods and substantive study of broad disciplines such as the humanities, ethics, and social sciences.
