- A total of 30 credits are required to earn the MALS degree.
- All MALS students must take an introductory experience made up of three one-credit courses taken back-to-back in the same semester: MALS 601, 602, and 603. This provides an review of graduate level academic writing and research, through the lens of a particular topic.
- Students also choose two MALS core courses.
- The other five courses may be selected from anything MALS offers, including core courses and electives. Students can choose from other graduate courses at UD (permission for up to six credits outside the program is automatic; additional courses outside the program need approval from Faculty Advisory Committee).
- At the end of the program, students complete either a traditional master's thesis or a more creative, alternative project. Six credits of MALS 869 (thesis) or MALS 879 (project) are required.
