The ability to manage the growing array of information tools has led to new opportunities for those who want to work in the information field, a discipline which bridges the management of both traditional and emerging information sources.
The Library and Information Science program from the University of Pittsburgh, which is accredited by the ALA through 2020, is designed to anticipate changes in the information environment and to educate the next generation of creative and entrepreneurial information professionals who can serve in a wide variety of capacities and in various settings.
Information professionals are the human element that connects people, information, and technology. The MLIS degree program provides a strong grounding in the skills, knowledge, and ethical practices of the information professions to prepare graduates to serve as critically reflective and actively engaged experts in the broader role of information in culture and society.
We encourage the development of creativity, professionalism, and proactive attitude to meet the needs of various clienteles. Our graduates have careers not only in the library, archive and museum settings, but in government, corporate, non-profit, and entrepreneurial environments as well. The MLIS program will prepare a diverse population of graduate students to make a difference in their communities through a rewarding and forward-thinking career path.
