Program Overview

The Master of Liberal Arts program, offered through Baker University, allows inpiduals to earn a degree entirely online. Students are expected to take courses in creative arts, sciences, interdisciplinary liberal arts and history to complete 36 credit hours. 

Earning a degree in Liberal Arts allows students to explore a vast array of topics during their course of learning. Inpiduals in the program expand their knowledge of literature, film, and music to gain an appreciation for the arts. Studying culture and various religions leads to a better understanding of other’s beliefs and traditions. Through management courses, students strengthen their leadership and communication skills by facilitating group work. 

Before graduation can be considered, inpiduals will need to complete a capstone project where students compile a written pre-course survey, final survey, and form explaining accumulated artifacts (papers, assignments, projects) from MLA coursework. The portfolio will be presented at the end of the MLA program, either the end of fall or spring semesters. Capstone projects need to be approved by an academic advisor before beginning. Some examples of appropriate capstone projects include: an extensive research paper, philosophical essay, or an original research project. To be considered for entrance into the program, a completed application and fee, official transcript, and TOEFL scores can be sent to Baker University.
