NOW YOU CAN. REALLY.

UNCG's online Master of Arts in Liberal Studies (MALS) offers innovative, project-based courses that develop the very skills today's employers want—intellectual curiosity, integrative thinking, adaptability, empathy and cross-cultural competence. By developing these in-demand skills and applying them to real-world problems and contexts, you will gain the depth and breadth you need to succeed in today's workplace.


THE COURSES YOU WANT. THE SKILLS YOU NEED.

The highly collaborative MALS program begins with three new courses that teach you to apply what you learn to real problems:

  • Systems Thinking
    Introduces you to the basics of systems thinking—teaching you to see things holistically, recognize patterns and connections, and learn how to analyze and produce creative solutions.

  • Design Thinking
    Focuses on a human-centered approach to problem-solving and innovation. You will collaborate in highly interactive peer review groups and build individual prototypes that address a problem of your choosing.

  • Understanding Data
    Examines a hot topic in business today, Big Data, and what to do with it. You will learn how to use relational databases in business analysis, extract stories from the data, and learn to use data visualization.
