overview

一道本不卡免费高清You never stop asking, “Why?” A brilliant insight can come from a book, a painting or a conversation. A lively debate about ideas gets your heart pumping more than a double espresso. The nature of reality, identity and humanity are the lenses of your intellectual life. Creative expression helps you navigate new material. Rollins’ Master of Liberal Studies program is where you will find like minds and grow by integrating disparate ideas. You may even find a new path to a new career! 


We teach students new ways of thinking, not just new knowledge. Students update and curate their worldview through analysis of philosophy, history, art, literature, humanities, politics, religion, psychology and themselves. Critical thinking and communication skills honed in the MLS program prepare students for a rapidly changing job market by developing skills that are irreplaceable by technology; you may even find a path to a new career. And, even when you complete your degree, you're never done learning. Our alums return for speakers, annual events, and book clubs. 

Each cohort begins the core curriculum in the fall. Class size is limited to maintain low student to faculty ratio, facilitate engaged classroom discussions and provide individualized attention. Admitted students may take electives or masterworks classes for credit prior to the fall semester.
