The pursuit of a Master Liberal Studies degree from Southern Methodist University is an adventure in intellectual freedom, unique to graduate level programs of advanced education in America.

Each journey is guided by personal passion and scholarly curiosity. Every individual passage is accompanied by fellow seekers of knowledge who collectively enrich the experience.

Along the way you may expect to be challenged, surprised, inspired, enlightened, energized and perhaps even transformed. Students interface with educators from virtually every university discipline. Instructors bring unmatched credentials and dedication to the teaching of a range of subjects that spans the ages and expands to explore the universe.

Do you already have a graduate degree? Apply for the Doctor of Liberal Studies or Certificate of Advanced Graduate Study for more focus in your chosen curricular field of study.

“You have the opportunity and the flexibility to chart your own path.”

– Michele Niese Mrak
Executive Director, Graduate Liberal Studies
