St. Norbert College is hosting an informational open house to discuss and answer questions about its new Master of Arts in Liberal Studies program, which will begin in the fall of 2009.

The primary audience is young professionals who are established in their careers but interested in pursing a graduate degree that develops both their analytical and communications skills, broadening their knowledge of the world and of themselves.

"We believe this new graduate program will expand and enhance people's lives. It will likely also enhance their professional lives," said Michael Marsden, dean of the college and academic vice president. He added that, in the ever-changing global economic scene, there is a greater emphasis on skills and knowledge that can be transferred from one job to another, a trait Marsden believes employers are seeking more and more.

The open house will be held on Thursday, August 6, from 7 to 8:30 p.m. in the Mulva Library (3rd floor reflection lounge) located on Third Street in De Pere. For directions see campus map at http://www.snc.edu/map.
