The Master of Liberal Studies, with an emphasis in Gerontology or Health Science, is offered in conjunction with the Department of Health and Human Performance and utilizes a highly skilled faculty teaching a well rounded curriculum. This degree offers graduate students all the flexibility of the Master of Liberal Studies degree in a framework that emphasizes highly practical skills in human performance issues. The curriculum integrates both topics of traditional importance along side workshops in more contemporary issues to give students a broad overview of the discipline. The MLS degree with a concentration in HHP is not a Masters in Health and Human Performance. If you are searching for a discipline-specific masters degree, you should check with your certifying agency to determine if the MLS degree will meet your needs.
