M.A. in Liberal Studies

Wichita State has taken steps to discontinue the Master of Arts in Liberal Studies degree program. Current MALS students in the process of completing course work, a thesis, or a final project will continue to be supported by faculty with a view to graduation. Prospective MA students in the Humanities and Social Sciences who might have been interested in this interdisciplinary program are advised to reach out to the department of their main academic interest in order to explore the possibility of Masters-level course work or a specific MA degree program. Contact wilson.baldridge@wichita.edu for more information.

The Master of Arts in Liberal Studies (MALS) program was designed for people who wish to pursue a particular topical or interdisciplinary interest at the graduate level. The liberal studies program offered students an opportunity to design a program of study to answer their particular needs and interest in a focused, coherent manner.
