The Master of Liberal Arts Program provides learners with the unique ability to pursue a highly customized interdisciplinary graduate degree program, developed according to their own interests, while building broad analytical and problem solving skills that reach across the boundaries of academic disciplines and beyond the structured format of traditional graduate degree programs. The program is designed for mature learners who seek intellectual stimulation within a broad framework of studies, mid-career adults who wish to expand and enhance their knowledge and skills, and recent university graduates who desire an innovative curriculum for building and deepening their reading, writing, and communication abilities. The MLA degree is based on "The Search for Order," a theme that explores rational, intuitive, and empirical ways of knowing and learning. This approach, central to graduate liberal education across the country, is evident through the program at Winthrop.

The Master of Liberal Arts program has been a full member of the Association of Graduate Liberal Studies Programs (AGLSP) since 1995.
