|Welcome to MLA - Master in Liberal Arts at the University of St. Thomas|
offers a master's program involving a wide range of courses in the liberal arts (humanities and social sciences). This program, which began in the fall of 1988, is open to all who have an undergraduate bachelor's degree (GPA 2.5 or better) from an accredited institution. Completion of this program requires 36 hours (total) of credit.
This is an exceptional opportunity for those who would like to obtain a master's degree and add to their knowledge, especially in areas not covered in their undergraduate education. The goal of the program is for each student to achieve a high level of cultural literacy.
The University's Master in Liberal Arts is a post-baccalaureate program designed to supplement and enrich a student's previous education in the liberal arts. Unlike conventional graduate programs with their narrower specializations, the MLA program encourages, in fact by its very nature requires, students to expand their knowledge in various disciplines. The program therefore aims not only at a deeper understanding of each subject studied, but also at an integration of the various aspects of knowledge, art, and life.
