College of Arts and Sciences
"As a part-time student working full-time, I found the Master's of Liberal Arts and Sciences Program to be a great way for me to broaden my educational horizons. My classes were taught by exceptional professors, and I immersed myself in challenging academic material. An added bonus is that I forged lifelong relationships with fellow students in the program. I can't think of a better way to have spent the last three years."
-- Gretchen Steil Weiss, MLAS Summer 2013
