The University of Alabama's MLIS is custom designed for busy and disciplined students entering the profession.
Students in the MLIS program are prepared for leadership opportunities in library and information service careers. They gain knowledge on the uses, organization and management of information in socially responsible ways, while learning the role information plays in personal, educational and organizational contexts. Students will experience rewarding work in a fast-moving information environment and enjoy rewarding career opportunities and job mobility.
The MLIS program takes advantage of the cohort model, providing students with support from a group of peers. Coursework for this national cohort option consists of online courses delivered synchronously with students attending virtual sessions, usually one night per week, to share content, work in groups, and have discussions with instructors. This convenient format provides students with the opportunity to network both with their professors and classmates.
