School of Liberal Arts and Social Sciences

The School of Liberal Arts and Social Sciences is the largest of LdM’s seven schools dedicated to spurring intellectual curiosity, creativity, and transformative education. With 16 departments spanning across the humanities, social sciences, business, and communications, LdM encourages interdisciplinary inquiry on global issues through a distinctly blended curriculum that broadens students’ perspectives, inspires potential, and advances possibilities for personal and professional growth.

LdM is strongly rooted within the context and the atmosphere of its locations, using each city as an extension of the classroom. LdM’s interdisciplinary community of higher-education instructors are committed to the study of human ideas and experience, critical inquiry, creative expression, and open discourse.

Courses examine themes such as the changing dynamics of Italian urban life, the remarkable diversity of Italy’s regions, and the multiculturalism of modern Italy. Students gain interpersonal skills while obtaining a new perspective on values which are vital in today’s global society.
