The College of Liberal Arts offers the Master of Arts in Liberal Arts, an interdisciplinary, 30-hour program offering a thesis and non-thesis option.
The Master of Arts in Liberal Arts (MALA), a broadly interdisciplinary program, allows students to construct a personal plan of study from within the Liberal Arts disciplines, which include art, communication studies and organizational communication, English, foreign languages and literatures, global studies and cultural geography, history, music, philosophy, political science and international relations, sociology and anthropology, and theatre and dance. With the guidance of the program director, students build a program of study that will enhance career opportunities, provide preparation for further graduate study, or create opportunities for lifelong learning.
