The mission of the accredited Master of Library and Information Science (MLIS) degree is to prepare professionals for leadership roles in libraries and other information organizations. By emphasizing the core principles and practical experiences of information access, organization, services, and support, we educate a diverse student body for professional service to meet the various information needs of their local and global communities. Within the MLIS are three main pillars with several professional specializations. The pillars are Library Services, Information Management, and Archives and Digital Content Management. These three topic areas have specializations with recommended courses detailed in order to gain the skills for employment. Specializations are not specifically listed on the diploma so there is no minimum requirement for the number of courses to take in each area. Students are encouraged to decide, in consultation with their academic advisor, which of the recommended courses will provide them with the skills needed to reach individual career goals.
