The Mariner Academic Strategies and Techniques (MAST) Program is offered through the University’s Learning Center. Originally designed to support students with disabilities, the MAST Program is now open to all Marymount California University students.
Highly motivated students who want to strengthen academic skills, improve understanding of the learning process, develop self-advocacy and improve self-confidence should apply. Qualified learning specialists support MAST Program students in an academic coaching and mentoring model that focuses on meta-cognitive–– “big picture”–– learning; enrollment is limited. Students receive an intake assessment to identify the level of support needed, and individualized prescriptive strategies are developed. Consistent and regular support (3-4 appointments per week) is provided by the MAST learning specialist. For details and fees, please view the brochure below. Ruth Proctor, Coordinator of Disability Resources, oversees the MAST Program; she may be reached by email – firstname.lastname@example.org, and by phone at (310) 377-5501, extension 7367.
