The Liberal Studies Master of Arts program consists of six separate programs of study. These programs are interdisciplinary and cross-departmental with different specific requirements and intellectual approaches.
Some information, policies, and procedures are common to all six of the Liberal Studies Master’s programs. All Liberal Studies students should familiarize themselves with this information as well as with program-specific information found on the program websites listed above.
As students of Columbia University and the Graduate School of Arts and Sciences, students should also become familiar with information included in the GSAS Bulletin and Essential Policies for the Columbia Community. These publications are only available online; they are accessible by link via the LSMA Policies and Procedures web page.
