Program Overview

Minimum Hours: 36
Prerequisite: Bachelor's Degree

The Master of Science in Library and Information Science is a 36-hour online and/or face-to-face program including a three-hour practicum consisting of 120 field hours. The remaining non-required degree hours may be completed with elective courses. The program centers on the following skill areas: (1) public services; (2) technical services; (3) information technology; and (4) success in the workplace.

The Master’s in Library and Information Science is focused on equipping graduates of the program with the skills they need to work with diverse populations in an ever-evolving global information society. Each course will incorporate a project incorporating the skills and knowledge from readings, discussions and other coursework to provide a practical experience rather than one that is theory driven. After completing core requirements, students will be able to study knowledge fields including archives, law librarianship, digital services, data science, medical librarianship, academic, school and public librarianship and other special topics.
