Advanced Study in the Liberal Arts
The core of the Master of Liberal Arts degree entails a broad range of interdisciplinary courses that draw from such areas as cultural studies, philosophy, American studies, media/film studies, sociology, women's studies, psychology, journalism, and political science. Students also have the opportunity to take courses from a variety of graduate programs across the College of Liberal Arts and elsewhere in the University. In general, the great strength of the MLA program is that it can be tailored to the student's own particular interests, and students are encouraged to develop an individual focus, based on their personal, academic, and professional objectives.
