Degree Programs

Dual Degrees and Specializations (for Master's Students)

African Studies (M.A.) and Master of Library Science (M.L.S.) Dual Degree

The dual M.A./M.L.S. program requires completion of a minimum of 56 credit hours of graduate course work, rather than the 66 credit hours required if the two degrees are earned separately. Students must apply for admission to the masters programs of both the School of Library and Information Science and the African Studies Program and meet the admissions criteria established for each. The two degrees must be awarded at the same time.

In addition to the SLIS S401 prerequisite, the requirements for the Master of Library Science (30 credit hours) are:

  1. M.L.S. Foundation courses (15 cr.), with S551 Library Management to fulfill the management and leadership skills requirement.
  2. Either S521 Humanities Information or S522 Social Sciences Information (3 cr.).
  3. SLIS elective courses (12 cr.).

A minimum of 26 credit hours is required for the Master of Arts degree. Contact the afrist [at] indiana [dot] edu (African Studies Program) for details.
