Master of Liberal Studies
The Master of Liberal Studies (MLS) program in the College of Liberal Arts and Sciences provides opportunities, at the graduate level, to engage your curiosity in an intellectual exploration of the world of ideas. An interdisciplinary graduate program, the MLS offers two tracks for students: a thesis/creative project track or the public intellectual track.
Master of Arts in English
The MA provides broad expertise in English Studies including literary analysis, composition, and creative writing. The MA degree opens employment opportunities teaching English in the schools or community colleges, working in the service and information industries, the news media, advertising, public relations, and in other corporations requiring writing specialists. It also offers a life-enriching continuation of intellectual study.
Master of Science in Applied Mathematics/Computer Science
This graduate degree is offered jointly by the Department of Computer and Information Sciences and the Department of Mathematical Sciences at Indiana University South Bend. The goal of this program is to address the needs of people who already have work experience in technical or quantitative fields, people with undergraduate degrees in science, engineering or business, or people who simply wish to increase their level of skills and expertise in computing and applied mathematics.
Master of Public Affairs
The Master of Public Affairs promotes a course of study that exposes students to the study of public policy and affairs that integrates professional management skills with the analysis of contemporary political, economic, and social issues. Understanding the political, economic, and social context in which public sector and non-profit enterprises operate are emphasized in the program's curriculum as well as a commitment to management skills-building and applications to policy making. The MPA degree provides a foundation for equipping managers to excel in their jobs and to become leaders in their workplaces and communities.
