The Master of Arts in Liberal Studies program, with its interdisciplinary approach to the liberal arts and sciences, explores in depth multiple perspectives on the theme of human nature as it has been considered during different historical periods and in different cultures. These perspectives are taken from diverse disciplines, including communications, the humanities, and the social, natural, and computer sciences. Your studies result in a deeper understanding of modern developments in these disciplines. You have the option of selecting elective courses in order to concentrate on a particular area of study, such as fine arts, religion, sociology, literature, history, media, and others. Course work includes classes and seminars, which are small and discussion-oriented. Many students enter the MALS program to broaden an undergraduate education that was technical or highly specialized, to pursue an interdisciplinary education, or to pursue a career in which a broad liberal arts background is valuable, such as law, government, education, communications, philanthropy, publishing, sales, public relations, journalism, museum administration, and others.
