About Information Studies

About Information Studies

The School of Information Studies focuses upon the knowledge and skills necessary to identify, acquire, organize, retrieve, and disseminate information so as to meet people's varied information needs.

The School of Information Studies offers four programs at the graduate level. Its 48-credit Master of Information Studies (M.I.St.) offers students two program pathways: a course-based stream and a research project stream. Accredited by the American Library Association, the M.I.St. program prepares professionals to manage information resources and services in libraries and the wider information industries. Its 30-credit Graduate Diploma in Library and Information Studies and 15-credit Graduate Certificate in Library and Information Studies are designed to provide a formal environment in which information professionals can update, specialize, and redirect their careers for advanced responsibilities. Its Ph.D. program provides an opportunity to undertake research at the doctoral level in library and information studies within an interdisciplinary context.

For further information concerning programs, requirements, and courses, consult the School of Information Studies section of the most current eCalendar for Graduate and Postdoctoral Studies or the School website.
