Master of Liberal Arts
The Master of Liberal Arts Program provides learners with the unique ability to pursue a highly customized interdisciplinary graduate degree program, developed according to their own interests, while building broad analytical and problem solving skills that reach across the boundaries of academic disciplines and beyond the limited structure of traditional graduate degree programs.
The program designed for mature learners who seek intellectual stimulation outside of traditional graduate programs. In contrast to traditional master’s degrees which narrow a student’s perspective in a single discipline, the MLA degree is based on the philosophy that fundamental human questions cannot be addressed adequately from such a narrow point of view. This philosophy, central to graduate liberal education across the country, is evident through the program at Winthrop.
