The Graduate Center offers an interdisciplinary Master of Arts in Liberal Studies (MALS), designed to span the Humanities, Sciences and Social Sciences in twenty-two intellectually challenging yet flexible tracks. The Master of Arts in Middle Eastern Studies is also an interdisciplinary approach to graduate study, focused on the Middle Eastern region. In addition, five doctoral programs offer courses of study leading to a terminal Master of Arts degree, and the CUNY Graduate School of Journalism offers a master's in journalism.
The Master of Arts in Liberal Studies places an emphasis on rigorous scholarship, original research and intellectual collaboration within twenty-two tracks of interdisciplinary study. The MALS program is comprised of thirty-credits including an introductory course, two core track-based classes, six electives chosen from a vast array of offerings, and a final thesis. MALS classes are taught as seminars by the distinguished faculty of the Graduate Center, and students have the resources of New York City and the entire CUNY system at their disposal.
