M.A. in Liberal Studies
Expand your focus and blaze a new path with Fairfield University's NEW M.A. in Liberal Studies (MLS).
This program is designed for those with a passion for learning about the connections that exist between academic disciplines and in our world. It provides students with an illuminating and educational experience through a broad interdisciplinary liberal arts curriculum. Whatever your interest may be - professional, scholarly, or a thirst for life-long learning, graduates of the MLS program will develop critical thinking and writing skills as well as expanded cultural perspectives.
Through integrative learning and research opportunities, MLS students will be able to make connections across disciplines, explore different fields on knowledge such as history, philosophy, literature, the arts, or politics, and develop an understanding of the individual and its relation to society and the world. This is not a specialized graduate program but an interdisciplinary experience that will help you expand your focus and blaze a new path.
