Graduate Liberal Studies Program

Director's Welcome

Back in 1999, the Master of Arts in Liberal Studies (MALS) program had only 13 students and offered two courses. Now, we are one of the largest graduate programs at UNCW. Also, we offer one of only several post-Master's certificate options in the U.S. and the only post-Master's certificate option among the currently existing graduate liberal studies programs in the state of North Carolina. We serve the local community, out-of-state, and international students. 

The coming year promises to be exciting. We have put together what we feel will be an exciting, diverse, and thought-provoking line-up of courses for this academic year. GLS students can complete the MALS degree completely online.

I encourage you to browse through the GLS website for further detailed information about the GLS program at UNCW. I also invite and welcome any inquiries about the GLS program, the special quality of which is matched by the commitment, enthusiasm, and intellectual engagement of the students it enrolls.
