Education

Masters degrees are more versatile than doctoral qualifications and have a broad range of professional and academic applications. According to the U.S. Department of Education, three types of masters programs exist research, professional, and terminal. The most popular masters degree types are Master of Arts (M.A.) and Master of Science (M.S.) in a mixture of subject fields.

Some learners may choose to educate themselves, although most education is conducted under the guidance of a teacher or instructor. Higher education is often supervised by a professor. Education can occur in a wide variety of settings, either informal or formal.

MALT is predicated on establishing a New Culture of Learning that develops the knowledge, skills, competencies, and imagination for a world in constant flux.

Overview

The Master of Arts in Learning and Thinking (M.A.L.T.) is a 36-credit degree program that embraces a philosophy of education rooted in relationship, holism, and meaning. MALT is predicated on establishing a New Culture of Learning that develops the knowledge, skills, competencies, and imagination for a world in constant flux. Towards this end, the program nurtures the emergence of a collegial learning community dedicated to co-creating new meaning within a constructivist and transdisciplinary context.

MALT’s Postmodern Learning Model seeks to promote a New Culture of Learning through the following Six Central Themes:

Promote meaningful and alternative approaches to learning and thinking that encourage what holistic educator Douglas Sloan refers to as insight-imagination. Sloan describes insight-imagination as “…an act of perception, permeated with intense energy and passion that penetrates and removes barriers in existing thought and frees the mind to serve in new ways and directions. Insight announces itself as a whole…that includes new forms of imagination and new orders of reason…” Redefine the role of "learner" and "teacher" as co-creators in the participative framework of learning and thinking. Transcend the current Western Modernist Mindset by adopting a new participatory worldview whereby learners promote, maintain and generate a dynamic process for meaningful learning and thinking. Tear down the artificial barriers to knowing we have come to refer to as "disciplines" and refocus our attention to the interpenetrating and interwoven processes that serve as common ground to all knowledge systems. Renew what it means to be a "teacher" whose role is... [-]
