The Master of Arts in Liberal Studies and Leadership focuses on a vision of leadership informed by ethical decision making, a sense of social responsibility, and a concept of human behavior as understood and analyzed by some of the great thinkers of the past and present. In a complex world, effective leaders respond with knowledge and skills including interdisciplinary problem solving, critical analysis and clear communication. The MA-LSL program prepares students to adapt to complex and evolving organizations (workplaces, communities, nonprofit organizations) and to be effective and ethical participants in wider communities and societies.
Madonna University's MA-LSL program is designed for students who have a strong desire to actively pursue intellectual development for personal and professional application. The program employs an interdisciplinary perspective to leadership in personal, ethical, humane, and organizational contexts. A unique feature of the program is the students’ ability to develop a personalized area of focus, either disciplinary or thematic.
