When you choose to pursue a Master of Liberal Arts, you are choosing to create your own program. Other graduate degrees at Tech will have an exact list of classes that you have to take with no fluctuation or input from you. The Master of Liberal Arts program is not one program, but a combination of ten different departments coming together to form one interdisciplinary unit.
In the MLA program, you will be able to explore English, Journalism, Music and a number of other departments in the College of Arts and Humanities. While you will choose one main area of study, you will have the opportunity to take a number of classes outside of that focus. The Master of Liberal Arts also provides three options for a final project. Students can choose to complete a final comprehensive exam, a research project, or a creative project, the lattermost of which is unique to the MLA program in all of Arkansas Tech’s graduate programs.
