The Graduate Program in Liberal Studies program is designed for those who have completed a bachelor's degree and who want to enhance their ability to organize conceptually the social, scientific, and humanistic dimensions of the world of the late twentieth century. Interdisciplinary in nature, graduate education in the liberal arts is based on the assumption that beyond the technical competence required for certain tasks, people need the breadth and wisdom that have traditionally been fostered by the liberal arts. It is no longer possible, if it ever was, to complete a liberal education in four undergraduate years; a truly liberal education, which includes the ability to integrate knowledge from various fields, is the task of lifelong learning. The program leads to a Master of Liberal Studies (M/LS) degree.
Lake Forest Graduate School of Management is accredited by The Higher Learning Commission (HLC), North Central Association.
