We’re pleased to announce that CLS’ Master of Arts in Administrative Leadership now offers three focused areas of study that will allow students to customize a degree plan to fit their needs. These new options will allow students to develop critical leadership skills like strategic thinking and team building, while also providing them with tools they can use in their chosen careers.
Beginning in spring 2017, Administrative Leadership students will be able to choose one of three “tracks,” each consisting of courses in organizational leadership, volunteer and nonprofit leadership, or government and military leadership. Each track is designed to offer specialized, in-depth knowledge in a specific career area.
To choose a track, Administrative Leadership students will supplement their core classes—which will remain standard no matter the degree track—with electives from one of the three tracks.
These courses are required for ALL Administrative Leadership degrees.
Elective course requirements vary depending on chosen track.
Organizational Leadership Track:
Volunteer & Nonprofit Leadership Track:
Government & Military Leadership Track:
New MAAL students will automatically be enrolled in the new degree format, but current MAAL students who are interested in making the switch should first contact their advisor. Depending on how far you have progressed through your required electives, changing formats could mean taking on additional coursework. Your advisor will work with you to determine if pursuing a track is right for your individual plan.
