Flexible Scheduling

Graduate classes meet one evening per week for 14 weeks during the fall, spring, and summer semesters. Our small class size allows for personal attention from professors and ample opportunity to participate in class discussions and to ask questions. The MALS for Community Leadership degree program may be completed at our main campus in Reading or at our Philadelphia Center.

Also, there is an opportunity for cohort development in which a grouping of special topic courses could be developed to meet your organizational needs. The MALS is designed to meet the needs and demanding schedules of adult learners. In addition to the traditional semester format, courses may be offered periodically in alternative formats including condensed terms, online, hybrid (part traditional and part online), and short-term residencies.
