School of Information Sciences - Library and Information Science Program


The iSchool is pleased to announce that its ALA-accredited Master of Library and Information Science degree program has been recognized as one of the top-ten programs by U.S. News & World Report in the magazine's 2014 edition of  "America's Best Graduate Schools."  The MLIS program as a whole was ranked tenth in the nation, based on a 2012 survey, and the MLIS areas of interest received top honors as well.

The iSchool is extremely pleased with the MLIS program's rankings: "We are thrilled to be a top-rated graduate school of library and information science," notes Dean Ronald L. Larsen. "Our program is being recognized for its excellence, its academic rigor, and its support of the students."

MLIS degree programs are ranked by U.S. News & World Report every seven years. Only schools accredited by the American Library Association are included in the survey. The magazine surveys deans, program directors, and senior faculty from these accredited schools, asking them to evaluate the academic quality of the MLIS programs.
