THEN the Masters of Arts in Liberal Studies is for YOU.

The Graduate Program in Liberal Studies, established in 1994, is a cross-disciplinary, 30 credit program leading to a Masters of Arts Degree and offering a broad range of courses in literature, history, philosophy, religion, social sciences, and the arts. It is intended to provide students with the kind of intellectual stimulation that comes from working with a highly qualified faculty of expert scholars in a variety of disciplines, and with fellow students from diverse backgrounds.

The program is designed for mature students with varied work and life experiences. Small classes encourage the in-depth exploration of ideas. Classes meet at convenient times, either in the late afternoon or early evening, in order to accommodate returning students who work. If you like to read and then discuss the ideas your reading has generated; if you have intellectual interests which you wish to explore and cross-fertilize; if you wish to acquire knowledge beyond the professional specialty in which you are already an expert, Liberal Studies may be just what you are looking for.

Graduate Liberal Studies is also available at our Joint Base–McGuire, Dix, Lakehurst location.
