Combining rigorous course work in food scholarship, library science, information literacy, and selected electives, this dual degree provides the opportunity for you to double your credentials and expand your career options in less time than if you pursued an MA in Food Studies and an MSLIS in Library and Information Science separately.
Students at the Food Studies and Library and Information Science MA/MSLIS dual degree at New York University have the opportunity to supplement their course work by participating in a mentorship program with NYU library subject specialists. These individuals offer professional guidance based on their experiences throughout the duration of your studies.
Careers and Outcomes
Many academic research institutions require their librarians to have not only an MSLIS degree, but also a master’s degree in a particular subject area. As a result, this dual degree efficiently prepares you for a dynamic career as a food studies specialist, archivist, or scholar-librarian in academic and research institutions, specialized libraries, or information centers.
