Suggested Program of Study

The School of Library and Information Science (SLIS) has developed a program of study for students in the area of Information Science and Technology. The coursework designated on this program of study will provide the skills, knowledge, dispositions and professional values MLIS graduates will utilize in a career of managing people and knowledge for their organizations. Students with an interest in a particular aspect of information science (e.g., Web design; networking; user experience) or a specific institutional setting (e.g., start-ups, academic libraries; corporate environments) may wish to consult with their advisor to select alternate elective courses.

In addition to the successful completion of a 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.
