Program of Liberal Studies

Do you hate it when people tell you that you have to choose just one major (or just two; ok, and maybe a minor)? Do you want your education to be personally transformative, while also preparing you for whatever profession you happen to be passionate about upon graduation? The PLS major might be a great fit for you.

The Program of Liberal Studies is one of the most distinctive, challenging, and rewarding courses of study that you can pursue at the University of Notre Dame. In an integrated curriculum composed of small discussion-based Seminars and Tutorials spanning the arts, history, literature, natural science, philosophy, politics, and theology, students and professors join a vital conversation about what it means to be human.
