What Is MALS?
Although we are a Master's Degree-granting program, if a traditional academic department were a country, MALS would be the U.N. MALS courses, taught by faculty from all over the College of Arts and Sciences, break down traditional departmental boundaries to explore important questions through a variety of perspectives.
Course offerings include such diverse topics as bioethics and modern literature, social myths and American foreign policy, and the roles played by film, food, art, and war in shaping our current society. As a whole, the MALS program develops the timeless qualities of a liberal education at the graduate level: to think freely, to imagine adventurously, to choose discriminately, and to understand deeply.
What does it mean to be human? How do we explain ourselves to ourselves? Where did we come from, and where are we going? What do we mean by good and evil? If you're intrigued by the opportunity to explore such questions with likeminded adult colleagues, this might be the place for you.
