The Graduate Liberal Studies Program offered by SFU is an interdisciplinary program leading to the degree of Master of Arts in Liberal Studies. This is a part-time program, for working or otherwise busy adults, with classes offered during evening and weekend hours at SFU's downtown campus. Students have 3 – 4 years to complete their MA, either through coursework or thesis options.

Designed for the intellectually curious life-long learner, the Graduate Liberal Studies program offered by Simon Fraser University is a part-time program where mature students can pursue an interdisciplinary Masters of Arts degree by participating in a rigorous academic program that is both flexible and diverse. Our focus is on the breadth of learning, by integrating knowledge from many of the traditional Arts, Science, and Social Science disciplines in order to provide an intellectual grounding in the ideas and values that have shaped our culture.
