The Master of Arts degree provides students with a multidisciplinary and academically rigorous program. The Master of Arts is a student-centered program that enhances students’ educational choices for intellectual, professional, and personal growth. Students choose one of six academic specializations. A strong collaborative working relationship with the faculty provides students with support and advice necessary to plan their chosen course of study. In addition to the Master of Arts core faculty, the program draws professors from many departments throughout Regis University and from experts working within the community. At Regis University, the spiritual, ethical, and social development of the Master of Arts graduate student is of utmost importance. Opportunities for self-reflection, critical and creative thinking, community outreach, and service learning are foundational dimensions of this degree.
Admission is open to all men and women who have earned a baccalaureate degree in any field of study from a regionally accredited college or university. Applicants must demonstrate an ability to achieve graduate-level writing and critical analysis abilities before admission to the Master of Arts degree program.

- Completed application form.
- Official transcripts reflecting a baccalaureate degree awarded from a regionally accredited college or university

Once all documentation has been received, an admission committee reviews the application and makes an admission recommendation.
