History and Library and Information Science (M.A./M.L.I.S. Joint Degree)
Joint-degree programs allow students to earn two degrees with fewer credits than if the degrees are earned separately. Students who enroll in the joint program will earn both the M.L.I.S. and M.A. in History degree. Graduates will increase their job market potential and be prepared to enter a new workforce that is capable of appraising and describing historical records, creating websites, and preserving electronic documents. Candidates must complete the required courses as outlined for both programs in order to graduate. Core courses in one program may not be used as elective courses in the other; fourteen credits of electives may be double-counted.
Requirements: Library and Information Science
Students will complete twenty-nine credits in core and elective Information Science courses and seven credits in History elective courses.
