Prospective M.A. Students
This page is designed to walk prospective students like yourself through the MA application and registration process for the Mythgard Institute at Signum University. If you are still considering whether or not to apply, you may find our Admissions, How Our courses Work, and our Current Courses pages beneficial.
Applying for the M.A. Program
Would you like to pursue an M.A. by studying the books you love with top-notch professors?
Our courses bring the intensity and interactivity of a traditional Master’s level program into a completely online environment. This means that, while our online platform will enable you to take classes from wherever you live and permit you a good deal of flexibility in your schedule, our courses will still require you to attend several class sessions a week and to do a substantial amount of work outside of class, both reading and writing. If you are not sure that you can keep up with all of the assigned work, you may want to consider auditing a class instead.
You must have a completed bachelor’s degree to apply for our courses at the M.A. level.
For more on what a standard week in a Mythgard class is like, visit our How Our courses Work page.
