78 School of Library and Information Studies

    The School of Library and Information Studies offers the Master of Library and Information Studies (MLIS) degree. The MLIS program is accredited by the Committee on Accreditation of the American Library Association. This accreditation is also recognized by the Canadian Library Association.

    The MLIS develops the knowledge, understanding, attitudes and skills that prepare graduates for positions of responsibility in school, academic, public and special libraries, and in the information industry.

    In preparing for the MLIS program, students should include courses distributed among the social sciences, biological and physical sciences, literature, and other areas of the humanities. Prior library experience can be beneficial.

    The minimum requirement for the MLIS degree is either 13 single-term graduate courses and a thesis (thesis route), or 16 single-term graduate courses and a capping exercise (course-based route). Students may enrol in the School on a full-time or part-time basis. Students registered full time will normally be able to complete the degree requirements in two years. There are no residence requirements in the course-based route.

    For further information, contact the School of Library and Information Studies.
