    DESCRIPTION
    Students in the MACS program are encouraged to design their own degree program to meet individual professional needs and personal interests. The MACS program offers graduate studies that serve mid-career working adults interested in intellectual advancement. In keeping with liberal studies traditions, students will analyze a range of social issues using a cross-disciplinary approach. To meet the needs of working adults, MACS offers online course delivery. 5-day residential institutes, designed to compliment the online format, offer students the opportunity for intensive, face-to-face interaction with faculty and fellow students.

    Students can complete the MACS degree as a 33-credit hour program, or as a 36-credit hour honors degree program. They complete 4 required courses (12 credit hours) within the Graduate School of Humanities and Social Sciences. In collaboration with the program director, students design the required practicum sequence (6 credit hours) according to their own professional needs and personal interests. Students in the MACS program design their own program concentration, selecting a concentration track and choosing 4 courses (12 credit hours) from an extensive concentration track course menu. An additional 3 credit hours are available as an open elective to students choosing not to pursue a Master抯 Thesis.

    Barnes & Noble College Bookstores, as the university's official bookstore, offers comprehensive bookstore services to our local and online students and carries textbooks for all the university抯 courses.

The university's bookstore provides the full-spectrum of shipping options.

Students should place their orders early enough to ensure delivery prior to the start of the term.
