The Master of Arts in Liberal Studies program publishes a newsletter each Fall and Winter semesters.  The newsletter, Spectrum, includes information about current and future courses, travel opportunities and alumni news as well as interviews with current students and faculty.  On occasion, Spectrum will publish examples of MALS student work.

The current issue of Spectrum (Fall 2014) contains a letter from the Director, Chris Clason, interviews with two Oakland professors who have made important contributions to the program, a section of poetry composed during the Fall Semester 2013 in Peter Markus's LBS 501 seminar, and reflections from two OU MALS students on the Michigan Academy Conference, in which they participated.
