Baker University’s Master of Liberal Arts program was recently recognized by Master’s Programs Guide as a top-50 online college MLA program. Master’s Programs Guide was created to help students find the best master’s degree program to meet their goals.

Baker’s MLA program was ranked No. 37 and is one of only two Kansas institutions on the list. Programs were chosen based on many factors—the most important being regional accreditation. Other criteria included school reputation, clear liberal studies focus, and amount of program accessible online.

Master’s Programs Guide describes an MLA degree as one that offers many choices and cross-discipline course work in the humanities, natural sciences, social sciences, and the arts, usually with great flexibility and a wide range of elective topics. Baker’s online program fulfills this criteria and can be completed in about two years.
