The Master of Liberal Studies is purposefully designed to move beyond the narrow confines of a single academic discipline. Instead of looking at the world through the limited lens of one discipline, the MLS closely matches the broader way we learn on a daily basis; it provides us with many different ways to understand the world.
The program includes three core seminars that explore transdisciplinary approaches to problems and issues articulated by the study of individuals in society and one culminating applied project. Graduates come away with an expanded understanding of the world and with research and writing skills that are applicable to nearly all professions.
Students choose three of the four required core courses listed to fulfill the nine credit hour core requirement. Students choose six topics within MLS 598 to fulfill the 18 credit hours of electives.
