MALS 2010 Alum Survey
We recently conducted a survey of MALS graduates to find out what they are doing and what they think about the program in retrospect. Results point to the diversity of student interests possible through an interdisciplinary study program. Several MALS alums are professionals in medical, non-profit, service, and computer/technical fields. 68% of MALS alums are active in teaching K-12 or teaching at a 2 or 4-year college. Analysis of the data reveals that 100% of respondents were satisfied with their decision to pursue and receive a MALS degree. When asked why they chose the MALS Program, respondents commented on the flexibility of the degree and opportunities to include coursework from a variety of areas. Specific responses include, “To tailor my degree to my own specifications”, “to combine interests in both major and minor fields of study”, “it had the widest variety of opportunity”, and “the flexibility to complete the degree at my own pace”.
