A total of 30 credits are required to earn the MALS degree.
All MALS students must take Introduction to Graduate Liberal Studies (MALS601). This three-credit, team-taught seminar provides an review of graduate level academic writing and research and the nature of interdisciplinary study.
The other five courses may be selected from anything MALS offers, including core courses and electives. Students can choose from other graduate courses at UD (permission for up to six credits outside the program is automatic; additional courses outside the program need approval from Faculty Advisory Committee).
