Since the first entering class in fall 1984, over 500 students have graduated with a MALS degree from Duke University.  Many remain committed to Graduate Liberal Studies as active GLS alumni, attending lectures and other events that continue to nourish their minds and offer the opportunity to renew their friendships within the GLS community.  Some alumni audit courses or take GLS courses for credit, while some continue their higher education in doctoral or professional degree programs.  Others embark on new jobs, new careers or new phases of their lives. Some share their stories at GLS information sessions or are active in the GLS student/alumni organization GLS AfterHoursMany feel so positively about the program that they support its mission by contributing to the MALS Endowment Fund.  

This is a space in which alumni can contribute notices of big events in their lives (births, marriages, new jobs, etc.).  Check in regularly to keep up with your fellow alums!
