Master's Programs

Consider life's most profound questions. 

The University of Dallas offers master's degrees in a variety of liberal arts disciplines. Each area of study is informed by a unique sense of paideia, the education of the soul (by which the Greeks meant the basic self). This kind of education comes only as a response to life's most pressing questions.

Are we, as Gerard Manley Hopkins phrased it, "immortal diamonds"? Are we able to participate in a cause larger than ourselves? Only a profound exploration of these questions as they are raised in a study of the humanities can lead to an answer that is in any way satisfactory.

At the University of Dallas, this exploration is rigorous. After all, you'll encounter nothing less than the writings of the finest minds of the Western world. Plato, Aristotle, Dante, Shakespeare, Dostoevsky, and Nietzsche are just a few of the thinkers we explore here. Join us; It's about nothing less than the meaning of life.
