The Department of Library and Information Science offers a 36-credit Master of Library and Information Science (MLIS) degree both on campus and online. Accredited by the American Library Association, the program integrates theory and practice and features the following specializations:
- Digital libraries
- Knowledge management
- School libraries
- Social media
The mission of the MLIS program is to enable graduates to make significant contributions to the social development and the quality of life of individuals by strengthening the links among people, libraries and information, and technology in the context of promoting the values and freedoms of a democratic society.
The degree can be earned in a traditional face-to-face classroom setting, entirely online, or through a combination of both delivery options. The same faculty teach and develop the courses offered no matter how you choose to put your program together.
