African Studies & Library Science M.A./M.L.S.

Dual M.A./M.L.S., African Studies & Library Science

Our dual M.A./M.L.S. degree program in African Studies and Library Science prepares you for a wide range of careers requiring a combination of technical skills in information science, instructional design and development, evaluation, and analysis. This program responds to the growing need for librarians with Africa-specific knowledge and research experience in the humanities and social sciences.

The dual M.A./M.L.S. program requires completion of a minimum of 56 credit hours of graduate coursework and the two degrees must be awarded simultaneously. You will be assigned a mentor/advisor from each unit. Your African Studies M.A. thesis/project committee should include a representative of the Information and Library Science faculty or other means of including perspectives of both programs.
