The MLIS Program leads to the master of library and information studies (MLIS) degree, which is a 36-credit-hour program that is one of approximately fifty-five such programs in the United States and Canada accredited by the American Library Association. It is the only ALA-accredited program in the state of Alabama. The degree prepares graduates to work in any type of library or information center—public, K–12, academic, or special—and in entrepreneurial and research environments, especially those using advanced information technologies.
