More than ever, today's workforce and society in general place a high value on critical thinkers and problem solvers – people who can think outside their own everyday circumstances and who can participate more fully in their job, their social circle and their community at large. Nazareth's Master of Arts in Liberal Studies (MALS) program opens new channels of thinking, challenging you to be creative, inspired, and to see the world from many different perspectives.

What is a Master's in Liberal Studies?
An opportunity to Reinvent, Transform and Integrate your life and your work.

  • If you are looking to advance your career or expand your previous academic experience, the MALS program offers you an excellent opportunity to become intellectually engaged and enhance your personal achievements.
  • If you've put your career on hold for your family or other reasons, and are now ready to re-enter the workforce, MALS offers a competitive way to restart your career and hone your personal development.
  • If you are a teacher who has your initial certification and you are now getting your Master's degree, you can use the MALS courses to fulfill many of your degree requirements.

Program Highlights

  • An interdisciplinary curriculum – You'll be exposed to faculty from theatre, history, social work, psychology, ecology and much more. Many classes are team taught.
