A Journey Through the Liberal Arts and Sciences

My intellectual journey through the Masters of Liberal Arts and Sciences (MLAS) program at The University of North Carolina Asheville (UNCA) has been nothing short of a transformational catalyst in my academic and individual growth as a person. I entered the MLAS program in the fall of 2014, after obtaining an undergraduate B.S. degree in Environmental Studies from UNCA in the spring of the same year.  I was originally attracted to the program from hearing about the certificate in Climate Change Science and Society, giving way to a desire to see what the rest of the program could offer me. I was enticed by the diversity of the program and the wide variety of course content. The courses available were about subjects that I found to be very important and relevant in this world as well as subjects that I have never even thought about diving into, some of which I took the leap. In the MLAS program I was able to further my knowledge of subject matter I studied in undergrad, as well as venture into many other subjects that broadened my understanding and knowledge of the liberal arts and sciences.  I took courses varying from climate change science, poetry, European history, creative writing about documentary photography, environmental management, collective impact and public health, and analyzing young adult fiction novels. The interdisciplinary nature of the program challenged every ounce of my being and gave me the opportunity to think in ways that I never thought possible.
