The Master of Arts in Liberal Studies program is a
student-centered, interdisciplinary and self-designed
program within the College of Liberal Arts at UNH. It
is designed to promote broad intellectual comprehension
and personal enrichment in a small and supportive learning
community by focussing on themes or topics of interest to you
as an individual.
The program consists of seven courses (30 credits) broken
into three parts.
#1 A Core Seminar specifically designed for and
required of each student as an introduction to the program
as whole. The seminar will focus on such interdisciplinary
topics as "the Shaping of the Modern Mind," and will be
taught at times convenient for non-traditional students.
#2 A Concentration made up of five elective courses
chosen from various disciplines that centers on an
interdisciplinary theme or topic tailored to meet the
particular interests and needs of each student.
#3 A Master's Thesis/Project which is intended to act
as an integrating capstone experience for MALS students.
