Liberal Studies Master's Project

The intent of the master's project experience is to help students produce a work that will allow them to synthesize a wide range of knowledge gained throughout their courses.  The experience should also be an encouragement to continue their scholarship and community involvement.  Completion of the program should produce insights and, hopefully, create ways in which liberal studies can lead to the betterment of the student and the communities in which graduates live and work.

Projects may take a wide variety of forms.  They may be directly related to work or community involvement: a substantial report, a training program, the conducting of some major company initiative, the starting of a corporation or community program.  The project may take more traditional forms as well, such as an academic research paper.
