The Vanderbilt University MLAS program is designed for working adults, typically meeting one night or weekend day a week to explore topics in a graduate-level seminar format. MLAS classes cost about half the tuition of a standard Vanderbilt class, and further discounts are available to Vanderbilt employees.

The MLAS program is open to college graduates who complete an application process and are accepted.
