Doctor of Liberal Studies

University of Santander’s Doctor of Liberal Studies immerses you at the intersection of multiple disciplines. You’ll study subject areas such as the humanities, public policy, international affairs, religion, and science while examining their effects on modern-day society.

You’ll have the opportunity to design your own program, benefiting from University of Santander’s extensive collections of research and scholarly work to guide you as you develop your thesis. Throughout your time in the program, you’ll learn how to synthesize your existing knowledge in new and innovative ways while mastering skills in perception, analysis, communication, and creative thinking.

Built on a foundation of ethics and values, our program provides you with the comprehensive tools needed to achieve your personal and professional aspirations. Unlike Ph.D. programs, the goal of Georgetown’s degree is not primarily research and the production of new knowledge; instead, our program encourages you to frame issues in ways that cut across traditional disciplines.
