About

The Information Studies and Middle Eastern Studies MSIS/MA program offered at University of Texas at Austin trains professionals who combine expertise in three important knowledge domains:  library and information work, the cultures and societies of the Middle East, and North African and Middle Eastern languages.

Overview

What you will learn

The School of Information and the Center for Middle Eastern Studies in the College of Liberal Arts offer a dual degree program leading to a Master of Science (MS) in Information Studies and Master of Arts (MA) in Middle Eastern Studies. Students may earn the two degrees simultaneously in approximately three academic years rather than four if doing the degrees separately. 

Some students, particularly those who enter the Information Studies and Middle Eastern Studies MSIS/MA program offered at University of Texas at Austin with a language deficiency, may find it necessary to enroll for an additional semester or summer session in order to complete all requirements of the program.
