(1)

Through the Bachelor of Arts in Liberal Studies program, our students share an eagerness to advance their understanding of the world and develop the tools they need to reach their life goals. With flexible class options and extensive support of the Georgetown University community, earn the degree you’ve always wanted.

Mission: The mission of the Bachelor of Arts in Liberal Studies program is to provide a high-quality undergraduate education, rooted in the liberal studies approach and the Jesuit tradition of forming “men and women for others,” to non-traditional students in the metropolitan Washington, D.C., area. The quality of the program’s curricular and co-curricular offerings are commensurate with that of Georgetown University’s traditional programs, but are tailored to meet the intellectual and practical needs of non-traditional students.

Fellow Hoyas I wanted to share this class with you: Jesuit Values in Professional Practice. http://courses.georgetown.edu/index.cfm?Action=View&CourseID=LSHV-480 This was by far one of my favorite classes of my time at Georgetown and I think many of the students who want to do some good in the world will get a lot out of this course. Check in out and reach out to Professor Jamie Kralovec if you have questions.
