Master of Liberal Arts
McDaniel's Master of Liberal Arts (MLA) program is an interdisciplinary graduate program for adults interested in crossing the boundaries of a traditional, career-oriented approach. Interested participants include those who seek to explore new disciplines in the liberal arts, those who hope to supplement their professional education by continued intellectual growth, or those who wish to satisfy their continuing intellectual curiosity and creativity. McDaniel College is an active member of the Association of Graduate Liberal Studies Programs.
Many educators seeking an alternative to traditional graduate programs have found that the MLA better meets their needs. Elementary and secondary teachers have broadened their scope of knowledge in the MLA program while accumulating professional development credits required by their local school systems. Budding authors have used the program as a springboard toward completing their first novel. And our community members have explored a variety of topics to satisfy their curiosity, pursue hobbies, and enhance job skills.
Key Features of the MLA program include:
Classification: Baccalaureate College—Liberal Arts
Locale: Small Suburb
Size & Settings: 3,000-5,999
