Designed for working professionals seeking to convert passion studies into an advanced degree, APU’s Master of Arts Program rewards students ready for self-paced learning and personalized guidance.

Expect to work closely with your professional mentor and APU academic adviser as you design an individualized study plan. Your MAP degree accommodates workplace learning opportunities while you complete graduate-level academic research, writing and project presentation.

Your MAP degree is a three-stage program involving you in self-paced research, practical application and a mastery project.
