Liberal Studies (MA)
We live in the grip of powerful ideas and forms of expression. The MA in Liberal Studies helps you achieve an in-depth understanding of these ideas, our world, and your place in it. You are taught to grasp the core issues of our time, and to express yourself meaningfully on them.
The program offers practical writing tools and guided in-depth study in cross-disciplinary courses taught by renowned faculty at The New School for Social Research, who share the values of rigorous critical inquiry and thoughtful expression. The core courses ground you in the history of ideas and in the practice of sustained writing while helping you form a peer community. From there, you can branch out, taking advantage of the rich offerings and distinguished faculty of The New School.
You will work with both a faculty advisor and a student advisor to create a pathway tailored to your individual needs and ambitions. The New School offers a rich selection of courses with world-class professors who can extend your command of critical theory, the history of ideas, aesthetics, philosophy, politics, anthropology, media theory — wherever your curiosity takes you.
