Program Description:

The online Master of Liberal Studies (MLS) is a unique interdisciplinary graduate program available through the College of Arts and Sciences at FHSU. The program consists of a 10-hour core requirement, an 18-hour customized plan of study, and a 3-hour culminating experience for a total of 31 credit hours. The MLS is directed toward the non-traditional student seeking career enhancement or life enrichment through graduate liberal study.
