Studies Programs


President's Welcome

Welcome to the official website for the Association of Graduate Liberal Studies Programs (AGLSP)!  Our 80+ member institutions, as well as our alumni and our students holding individual membership, are deeply committed to the value of interdisciplinary education in the liberal arts and sciences.  Although we welcome students of all ages, our member programs have historically catered to working adults who bring significant life experience to the learning process, and who have demonstrated their commitment to lifelong learning.  The wonderful mix of students from so many walks of life provides a rich base for meaningful dialogue and deep learning, and we are appreciative of the opportunity work with them.  Our member programs offer a full range of graduate options (certificate, master’s, doctoral), so if you are interested in those pursuits, we invite you to join us!

2018 Fall Conference

Hosted by Arizona State University- October 11-13, 2018

Borders and migration have become keywords for understanding our contemporary moment. Not only are we witnessing an unprecedented global refugee crisis, but also the exponential proliferation of border walls and militarization. Ironically, at the same time, capital flows more freely than ever across national borders, the exploited migrant labor force inflates, and ideas travel instantly over the digital realm - a site that evokes a growing sense of a global borderless village. All this at a time marked by the rapid rise of right wing nationalism, xenophobia and racism. Not to mention the simultaneous advancements and push backs within and outside our borders in terms of sexuality, gender and reproductive rights.
