November 6, 2018 - The University of Memphis Lambuth will host an information session on the Doctor of Liberal Studies degree program Nov. 13 from 4-6:30 p.m. in the Varnell-Jones Hall Wisdom Parlor.

University College at the UofM is offering the Doctor of Liberal Studies (DLS) for the first time this fall. The DLS is a terminal degree for students who want to work across disciplines to engage a topic or issue.

A DLS degree allows participants to design their own interdisciplinary doctoral program focused on their areas of interest. Students will earn a total of 54 hours of post-master's coursework, which include 21 hours of University College core requirements and 33 hours of coordinated study, with no more than 18 hours in a single department. Students also must complete comprehensive exams and defend their dissertation/capstone project.

In order to pursue this degree, students must have earned a master's degree from a regionally accredited U.S. college or university with a minimum cumulative GPA of 3.25. For more information on the program, contact ucgrad@memphis.edu.
