A Close-knit Learning Community

One Year M.A. students become part of a cohort and develop close working and personal ties to their classmates. These close relationships serve them well while at La Salle and in the professional world beyond. Because One Year M.A. students are focusing on their schoolwork, they also have special opportunities to work closely with our faculty on research and professional development projects.
