Why Liberal Studies at Barry University

Roundtable discussions in an intimate Setting

The Master of Arts in Liberal Studies program (MLS) complements our challenging and diverse course offerings with a comfortable setting conducive to learning. At Barry University our classes are small, allowing you to build camaraderie among your peers. You will gain insight as you and your classmates engage in thoughtful discussions around important questions. Not only is this environment conducive to your learning, it will also strengthen your confidence to effectively communicate as a professional and leader.

Learn from a diverse group

The MLS program does not target a certain professional. Instead, we want students who have a passion for learning, who want to continue their education to broaden their outlook, and who want to ask the "big questions." Because of this, the program attracts individuals from a variety of disciplinary perspectives seeking to go outside of their structured learning environment. Learning from different perspectives only adds to the curriculum. You will face different viewpoints and arguments bringing the coursework alive as you delve into the material.
