I have seen this degree pop up a few times. Even Duke U is now offering a MS in Liberal Studies. I always thought graduate degrees where in a specific discipline. Is a Liberal Studies degree comparable to a degree in recreation (not therapeutic recreation) to be an easy degree for those who don't want to or can't make it in a specific discipline. I just don't get it. I have a friend who has a recreation degree from a regionally accredited college (Mt Olive), he said he went into that program because it was an easy degree to get. This is true of another guy I worked with at a state hospital a few years back, said he did it because it was easy. BTW, neither are the brightest bulbs in a dark room. I am under the impression a degree in Liberal Studies equates to the same thing.
