Survey of Liberal Studies for Mature Learners

The Liberal Studies for Mature Adults Program each fall offers a series of weekly
lectures over seven weeks to people age 55 and older from Saratoga, Warren, and
Washington counties. Presented by Skidmore faculty, the lectures cover a wide range
of issues in the humanities, arts, natural sciences, and social sciences, mixing the
contemporary with the historical.

Visit the Mature Learners Program Web site for more information.


Master of Arts in Liberal Studies program
The Master of Arts in Liberal Studies program enables students anywhere
in the world to immerse themselves in a graduate education without being uprooted
from their jobs or homes. Students typically complete their coursework at a
distance through individualized tutorials with Skidmore professors, in-class courses
at universities near their homes, supervised internships, and/or study abroad. 
Graduates enter Ph.D. programs and professional schools, further their current careers,
and start new ones.
