Engage the Digital Age With an MLIS Degree

Discover new career avenues within and outside traditional librarianship through our Master of Library and Information Science (MLIS) degree. According to the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics, jobs in “special” libraries, such as corporate, medical, law, health care, publishing and consulting are expected to be the largest growing sector of library jobs over the next decade. You will learn to manage vast quantities of information and analyze, evaluate and organize it using the latest technologies. The flexible MLIS program, offered online, on campus or a hybrid combination of both, is ranked 6th nationally by U.S. News and World Report, and #2 for school library media across the country.
