Master of Arts

The Master of Arts Option III degree program is designed for students pursuing a terminal master’s degree in human dimensions of organizations.  Students are required to take 36-hours of coursework, which are offered in a prescribed sequence. Each semester begins with an intensive week of study on the University campus, followed by twice-monthly classes on both Friday evenings and Saturdays. The degree is offered in a coursework-only option and culminates with the completion of a capstone project, which should apply to a challenge facing a specific organization. All courses required for program completion are offered in accordance with University policies that govern non-formula-funded (Option III) programs. Applicants admitted to the program must submit a nonrefundable pre-enrollment tuition fee (deposit) of $1,500 to secure enrollment in the program.
