The Master of Liberal Arts Program

The MLA offered by the Petree College of Arts and Sciences embraces an advanced liberal arts education and applies that perspective toward leadership and management.

A topical liberal arts curriculum allows for a dynamic, flexible, and always current interdisciplinary approach. Professors, community leaders, artists, and experts bring their insight and experience to the coursework.

The program culminates in a capstone experience unlike any other — one that integrates the liberal arts and leadership through scholarship, directed readings, portfolio creation, presentations, and participation in “Board Serves,” a United Way boot-camp for board membership where experts lead discussions on board governance, advocacy, fundraising, networking and a variety of board member “dos and don’ts.”
