The MLS is a 36-hour program designed for students who want to learn more about a variety of humanities fields but who do not need a thesis or any sort of education certificate. Since no thesis is required, the MLS is not suitable for someone planning on going on toward a PhD. The MLS is intentionally broad and diversified in its scope; students take a variety of courses from the different humanities departments (Art, English, Music, Communications, History and Political Science and Sociology and Social Work). No more than 12 hours from each field is the guideline, but students can appeal to have more courses in a certain field, as long as there is still a variety characteristic of a master's in liberal studies. See the current online graduate catalog for more specific details.
