About

The Master of Arts in Liberal Studies (MALS) program at the University of Memphis allows students to customize an interdisciplinary course of study. 

Overview

This Liberal Studies program at the University of Memphis is offered both on campus and fully online and features a flexible, adaptable curriculum that students can tailor for the broadest possible application and personal enrichment. 

Key Features 

  • It is designed to sharpen the intellectual skills necessary for lifelong learning—critical reading, scholarly writing, and the art of interpersonal communication.
  • Because each MALS student follows a unique course of study, students work with academic advisors to develop a curriculum proposal that satisfies both the interdisciplinary intent of the MALS program and the Graduate School's requirements for graduation.

Programme Structure

  • The Coordinated Study is comprised of twenty-one (21) credit hours selected by the student from two or more disciplines. No more than 12 credit hours may come from any single department, and a maximum of 12 credits of Experiential Learning Credit can be applied to the degree. 
  • All courses must be at the Graduate level and at least 12 hours of the Coordinated Study must be 7000-level courses or above. Each student completes a Coordinated Study grid before starting the program, and that grid serves as a working agreement between the student and the College of Professional & Liberal Studies.
