The programs: Master of Liberal Arts, Texas Christian University Master of Arts in Liberal Studies, Stony Brook University(SUNY) Both schools are ranked #99 according to US News. Stony Brook offers more courses and concentrations...Texas Christian University only offers 5 or 6 liberal arts courses each semester and you can't choose a concentration. Both programs are similar in price. TCU is an M.L.A., SBU is an actual M.A. TCU has no thesis, SBU has a project seminar which is similar to a thesis. SBU requires 33 credit hours, TCU requires 30 hours. Again, at SBU you can choose from about 7 or 8 different concentrations, TCU you just take 10, 3 hours courses of whatever you want. Program Websites: Master of Arts in Liberal Studies Online http://www.mla.tcu.edu/catalog.htm I'm currently in the M.L.A. program, but I've been accepted in the SBU program. I have 12 graduate hours, 6 of which could be transferred into the M.A.L.S. program. Or I could just stay at TCU and graduate much sooner. However, I wonder if the M.A.L.S. will be more marketable, career wise, than the M.L.A. degree. What do you guys think?
