Admission Process for the Master of Liberal Studies

 All applicants must:

  1. Submit a formal application for admission, which can be found on the Graduate School application page;
  2. Send official transcripts of all undergraduate and graduate course work;
  3. Submit 2 Letters of Recommendation;
  4. Submit a personal statement

Once you have submitted all materials, the Graduate School will forward the materials to the Assistant Dean. After the Assistant Dean has identified the appropriate area of concentration, your application will be forwarded to the MLS advisor for that department for consideration and recommendation. Once the Assistant Dean receives the departmental recommendation, you will be assigned an advisor. Finally, the Graduate School will complete its evaluation and notify you of the action taken and your admission status.  You should watch your email address for updates that may be requested by Graduate School admissions staff.

After Being Admitted

Once you have been notified that you have been admitted to the MLS program and have been assigned an advisor, you'll want to contact that advisor to coordinate a class schedule. Make sure and do this early enough before classes start so that the courses for your program do not close. Also, after you have been admitted to this concentration, please review the MLS Checklist and carefully read The MLS Student Handbook.

Please see the FHSU Graduate School policies regarding your ability to enroll in classes before you are considered for admission.

If you have questions or would like more information about the Master of Liberal Studies degree program, please contact the Assistant Dean of the Graduate School.
