Liberal Studies: Master of Arts in Liberal Studies (MALS)
The Master of Arts in Liberal Studies program makes possible a structured study of issues and problems outside the usual graduate school disciplines. Its interdisciplinary approach encourages students to see a specific problem, theme, or topic from a broad perspective by focusing on it through more than one methodology. The base of the 30-credit program is three team-taught core seminars that provide an intense examination of the sources and development of Western values.

While completing the core seminars (which comprise 9 credits), students, in consultation with a faculty advisor, select 18 credits of elective courses from existing college graduate offerings. This allows for a focused yet interdisciplinary approach at the master’s level of study.
