The Master of Liberal Arts (MLA) Program from Johns Hopkins University thrives on the curiosity, passion, and diversity of its students.
Our community of scholars eagerly embraces the Master of Liberal Arts interdisciplinary approach and flexible curriculum to better understand more about the world—and in so doing, learn and understand more about themselves.
The Johns Hopkins Master of Liberal Arts (MLA) is a unique, non-traditional graduate degree. Whereas most graduate programs ask you to become more and more specialized, the MLA expects you to both broaden and deepen your educational experience. Established in 1962, the MLA at Hopkins is the first program of its type in the country.
