Liberal Studies MA Program

The Master of Arts in Liberal Studies program supports the diverse interests of students pursuing graduate study in a variety of areas across the Arts, Humanities and Social Sciences.  The program focuses on issues in contemporary cultural theory in a global context.  The areas of study are flexible and open, and we particularly invite students who are interested in issues of pressing concern that cut across disciplinary boundaries – postcolonial studies; globalization; new media; race, gender and ethnicity; human rights; literary and cultural theory; feminist theory; politics, law and culture; and similar areas of work, all of which are reconfiguring the boundaries of contemporary liberal education.

Students in the program pursue an individualized course of study, focused on a particular problem or area of intellectual interest to be defined in consultation with the Director of the Liberal Studies program (Director) and participating faculty.
