What to Expect

At MCLA, our core mission is preparing you for personal and professional growth and success. That’s why we combine the academic core of a liberal arts education with so many ways to earn a degree.

You will be able to complete your bachelor’s degree through one of two pathways: a bachelor of science in business administration or a bachelor of arts in interdisciplinary studies, with focus in leadership and business, health and human service, or children, families, and society.
