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!
Each year, the Association of Graduate Liberal Studies Programs Annual Conference brings together representatives of the Association’s member ship to share ideas and discuss the latest issues in Graduate Liberal Studies. Each conference features paper presentations and panel discussions, as well as invited speakers with scholarly and real-world expertise.
The AGLSP is the professional organization of academic programs providing graduate interdisciplinary education in the liberal arts and sciences. The Association provides a forum for the exchange of information and ideas among the administrators of programs granting degrees that are interdisciplinary in nature and adhere to the values of liberal arts education.
Confluence is a national, peer-reviewed, interdisciplinary journal published by the AGLSP that reflects the best scholarly and creative work produced by faculty, students, and alumni/ae of AGLSP member institutions. Its broad scope includes scholarly essays and creative work such as short stories, poetry, creative nonfiction, and visual art. Confluence is a free-access journal; however, institutional membership in AGLSP is required for submission to and publication in the journal. Click here to learn more.
