Earning a Certificate and a Master of Arts in Liberal Studies Degree Concurrently
Students enrolled in the Master of Arts in Liberal Studies program may wish to focus their course of study by concurrently earning one of two certificates concurrently with their MALS degree:
- Museum Studies Certificate Program
Four courses of three credits each (or twelve credit hours) are required for the Museum Studies certificate. Under the MALS/Museum Studies option, three Museum Studies courses (or nine credits) are accepted as electives in the MALS program. MSST 804 - Museum Internship (3cr.) (350 hours), which is required for the Museum Studies Certificate, must be taken as overload for the MALS program.
- Graduate Certificate in Historic Preservation
The Graduate Certificate in Historic Preservation consists of 12 credits, two required three-credit courses and six credits of electives. Under the MALS/Historic Preservation option, nine credits of the certificate are accepted as electives in the MALS program and only three credits must be taken as overload for the MALS program.
For details about either of these concurrent certificate options, contact the MALS director at 302-831-4130 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
