Welcome to the home page of the Master of Liberal Studies (MLS) Program at The University of Toledo. Established in 1989, the MLS Program is especially designed for the adult learner who seeks to combine the challenge of graduate work with the freedom to explore new fields of knowledge.

Degree requirements are flexible, allowing you to design a customized program of study that reflects your unique academic interests. In designing your curriculum you are able to choose from literally dozens of graduate courses taught campus-wide. You can also earn a graduate certificate as part of your study by incorporating some MLS electives into a certificate program.

Many MLS students are employed full-time and typically enroll for one or two courses per semester. To accommodate your busy lifestyle MLS courses are offered in the evening and on the weekend. In addition to being taught in a traditional classroom setting, a number of MLS courses are also offered online.

For those of you considering the MLS Program at The University of Toledo we invite you to contact the director, Jerry Van Hoy, by e-mail at; you can also contact Online Admissions for general information.
