Integrated Hybrid Model
The Master of Arts in Leadership program can be completed in two years with a combination of intensive face-to-face sessions and online coursework through the Integrated Graduate Studies model. This distinctive Augsburg program features deep learning experiences and a schedule tailored to the needs and demands of adult students.
Connect with the city and its leaders
At the launch and mid-point of the program, you will attend an intensive face-to-face course that will allow you to deeply explore leadership topics while connecting with your learning community. During the five-day on-campus launch experience, you will meet with leaders from the neighborhoods surrounding Augsburg. The schedule for the midpoint intensive will be finalized with student input and may include a global study option at one of Augsburg’s international sites.
Connect the classroom to your life
The remainder of your coursework will be completed online and supported by three on-campus sessions per term (see integrated MAL curriculum). This convenient schedule allows you to work at a time and place that best fits your lifestyle.
Connect with a community of learners
You will complete the MAL integrated studies program with a cohort of your peers representing many different organizational and personal leadership perspectives. Not only will you learn from each other, you will also build relationships that will provide support throughout your program and a valuable network for the future.
MAL Hybrid Cohort students explore the Cedar-Riverside community and surrounding area to meet with local leaders.
