About

The joint Library and Information Science and History program from Catholic University of America allows students to develop professional competence in library and information science and in a subject area of history, which leads to a wide range of career possibilities.

Overview

The joint Library and Information Science and History program from Catholic University of America is designed to allow students to complete two separate master’s degrees in less time (with fewer courses and credit hours) than if they did the two degree programs separately.

Students in the program benefit from foundational instruction and specialized courses of study in emerging fields from Catholic University’s highly-ranked Department of Library and Information Science and the professional networks that department has developed, in combination with all the advantages of the Department of History’s rigorous instruction in one of the fields offered at the M.A. level.  The combination is ideal for anyone interested in academic librarianship or cultural heritage.

Degree requirements

The joint degree requires 30 credit hours in Library and Information Science, and 21 credit hours in History of which one course (3 credit hours) must be History 601.  The joint program thus requires a total of 51 credit hours, as opposed to 66 for the two degrees taken separately. Insofar as History is concerned, most other requirements apply as for the basic MA: students in the joint program must meet the same language requirement and take the same comprehensive exams, although the joint program requires one research seminar instead of the two required for the basic MA.
