English / Library and Information, M.A. / M.L.I.S.



The joint master’s program in English and library and information science prepares students for careers as subject specialists in academic or public libraries. Subject specialists typically work in such areas as collection development, reference, and bibliographic instruction.

Admission Criteria

Persons applying to the joint master’s program in English and library and information science must meet the admissions requirements of both the Department of English and the School of Library and Information Science.

Degree Requirements M.A. (28 Hours) / M.L.I.S. (27 Hours)

The joint master’s program is a 55-hour program leading to an M.A. in English and a Master of Library and Information Science. It is administered by a joint committee, which recommends students for admission and approves their programs. Admission is only to the joint program. Neither degree will be awarded separately. If students wish to change from the joint program to the regular degree program in English or library and information science, they must reapply to the particular program they wish to enter.
