SLIS provides you with the skills and resources you need to succeed.
Your experience as a student in the School of Library and Information Studies is our top priority.
Through innovative curriculum, collaborative research partnerships and academic programming, SLIS aims to prepare you for success during your time as a student and beyond. Residential, main campus students will benefit from face-to-face core classes and will have the opportunity to participate in various student organizations and field experiences; however, course electives required to complete the degree program are often offered in a synchronous online format.
We’re eager to help you make the most of our relationships with organizations and industry professionals on campus and around the world.
