Suggested Program of Study

The School of Library and Information Science has developed a program of study for students enrolled in the Fast Track Cohort's "Cultural Heritage Institutions" area of interest. The coursework selected will provide the skills, knowledge, dispositions and professional values MLIS graduates should be able to demonstrate access, preservation and storage of digital objects. This program of study covers all the SLIS core competencies with a special focus on digital technologies and understanding the needs of cultural institutions.

In addition to the successful completion of the 36-credit program of study, students will provide evidence that they have met the SLIS program core competencies by submitting a satisfactory portfolio that serves as the capstone experience for the MLIS degree.
