Curriculum: Students complete 40 graduate credit hours to earn an MS in library and information science. All MS/LIS students must complete the two required courses, IS 501 Information Organization and Access (4 credit hours) and IS 502 Libraries, Information, and Society (2 or 4 credit hours). These courses are foundational for all areas of the field and provide a context for future coursework in areas of specialization. The remaining credit hours provide students with a great deal of flexibility and allow them to customize the MS/LIS to suit their individual career goals. Please contact your advisor if you're interested in exploring course options.
