Information professionals are the human element that connects people, information, and technology. The Master of Library and Information Science (MLIS) degree program provides a strong grounding in the skills, knowledge, and ethical practices of the information professions to prepare graduates to serve as critically reflective and actively engaged experts in the broader role of information in culture and society. We encourage the development of creativity, professionalism, and proactive attitude to meet the needs of various clienteles. Our graduates have careers not only in the library, archive and museum settings, but in government, corporate, non-profit, and entrepreneurial environments as well. The MLIS program will prepare a diverse population of graduate students to make a difference in their communities through a rewarding and forward-thinking career path.
