The Master of Arts in Applied Arts and Sciences encourages innovative graduate studies across traditional disciplinary boundaries. It seeks to establish an intellectual community whose members, both students and faculty, are eager to employ the arts and sciences in ways that will enrich their understanding of themselves and of the world surrounding them. Interdisciplinary seminars, course work, and symposia are intended to nurture this intellectual community. The M.A. in Applied Arts and Sciences and the Post-Baccalaureate Certificate can serve to enhance career opportunities as well as provide personal enrichment. More information is available at The Graduate School or UNC Greensboro Online: The Division of Online Learning.
