The program prepares students to adapt to complex and evolving organizations (workplaces, communities, nonprofit organizations) and to be effective, ethical participants in wider communities and societies.

The MALSL program is designed for individuals who have a strong desire to actively pursue intellectual development for personal and professional success. A unique feature of the program is the student’s ability to develop a personalized area of focus, either disciplinary or thematic based.
