The Master of Liberal Arts program is available online, on campus or through a combination of both.

Courses in the MLA program are designed exclusively for this program to insure a broad-based, intellectually stimulating exposure to the richness of the liberal arts. Unlike most graduate courses, MLA courses do not have prerequisites, so students are free to explore a variety of fields or topics they may have missed as undergraduates. Each course approved by the MLA Advisory Committee, must meet the philosophical intent of the program to provide a multidisciplinary, non-career oriented graduate education in the liberal arts. Courses are offered on a rotating basis and are often revised to reflect new advances and perspectives. Classes typically meet from 6:30 to 9:10 once a week during the fall/spring semesters. Generally, one daytime class is available as a twelve-week course to further accommodate the working community and family schedule for the adult student. Courses, including travel/study, are also offered during the various summer terms. The Master of Liberal Arts Program publishes course descriptions for each semester. Courses preceded by an asterisk (*) have been designated as “Perspectives on Society” core courses.
