About

The MAIS program at Marylhurst explores areas of study without the confinement of typical discipline-bound graduate programs. Students may opt to follow a concentrated area of professional study: gerontology, spiritual traditions or organizational and leadership studies. Or they can choose the liberal arts concentration, selecting from all MAIS seminars, to meet personal and professional goals.
