Master of Arts Program

Alaska Pacific University’s Master of Arts Program (MAP) is designed for experienced, professional, adult students who know what they want to study and will learn more in a mentored, project-based master’s degree program than they would in a classroom-based program.  The MAP is also designed to give working professionals maximum flexibility to:

  • Design a customized program of individually mentored studies and projects
  • Work at your own pace
  • Set your own hours
  • Use projects in the workplace as part of your graduate program
  • Pursue your own academic area of interest

The MAP is demanding but incredibly rewarding.  Often, MAP students pick topics that are fresh and cutting-edge in areas in which they have prior experience or backgrounds.  However, the MAP can also be a very effective way to take a new direction, to change careers, or to develop a specialty.  It is a highly independent program that allows the student to customize their experience.
