The Master of Arts in Liberal Arts is an individualized program designed for the graduate student who wishes to pursue interdisciplinary studies. Such a program encourages students to consider issues and problems in society, culture, literature, science, art, and/or communication. Students will develop comprehensive contexts for scholarly work and appropriate methodologies for such studies. Graduate students in Liberal Arts may earn a Master of Arts degree by selecting 33 hours of graduate courses from three disciplines (programs) with the approval of their major advisor and committee. Two of the three disciplines must be from the College of Arts and Sciences. The discipline with the greatest number of semester credit hours is required to be a discipline in the College of Arts and Sciences. In addition, students will complete LA 5101 and LA 5301 and may not be taken concurrently.
At the time of entrance into the program each student must complete a degree plan with a Liberal Arts advisor and select a committee based on the student’s areas of interest. Leveling work may be required in some disciplines.
Offered in Alpine College of Graduate Studies.
