Program Accessibility

The MALS offers a variety of classes at a variety of times, with the default time for the required core classes in the evenings starting at 6pm. Most electives are in the evening as well, but a variety of offerings are available throughout the day. The MALS also accepts courses from other disciplines and from other masterís programs at USI, though the director of the MALS has to seek approval for you in such cases. The net effect though is that the MALS has access to more courses than just those with the LBST prefix. The majority of MALS students are part-time, taking one or two courses a semester, but we have several students going full-time and we have enough offerings in place that a student could, in some instances, complete the degree in three semesters, counting summer semesters.
