Master Of Liberal Arts (MLA)

Henderson State University's Masters of Liberal Arts (MLA) program is designed to cultivate an appreciation of cultural ideas and ideals, such as truth, order, and beauty. The program focuses on the development of critical thinking, written and oral communication, and scholarly research. Our MLA program aims to provide a liberal arts education which challenges the mind and invigorates the spirit. This program is also an associate member of the AGLSP, Association of Graduate Liberal Studies Programs.

Our MLA faculty offer courses in English, history, geography, political science, art, communications, philosophy, music, and theater. With a low student to teacher ratio, you are guaranteed to get invaluable one-on-one attention and mentoring.

Henderson's MLA program also offers a number of graduate assistantships, which include tuition waivers and monthly stipends, to teach and work on campus.
