The master of arts in liberal studies (M.A.L.S.) is an innovative, interdisciplinary graduate program. Housed within the College of Liberal Arts but drawing its courses and instructors from across the University, the program makes available a diverse spectrum of offerings and a wealth of faculty expertise and resources.
The liberal studies curriculum is intended to promote broad intellectual comprehension and enrichment rather than vocational or professional training within a single field or discipline. Designed to address the particular interests of students who seek to deepen their knowledge, the program offers a challenging but flexible program of cross-disciplinary learning.
