Library and Information Science at Drexel University
is a flexible, American Library Association approved program, offered online, in person, and in a hybrid form, to allow our students options to tailor their academic careers to fit their lifestyles.
Students who are part of our Masters in Information Library Science Major, benefit from being a part of one of the oldest continuously operating library and information science (LIS) graduate programs in North America. Drexel’s program builds on founder Anthony J. Drexel’s vision of “a University with a difference.” Our students learn to create, protect, organize, manage, curate, analyze, retrieve and disseminate data and information in multiple media across the wide range of information domains. As graduates, they help advance knowledge, manifest social responsibility, promote community outreach, improve society as global citizens, and lead the library and information field as practitioners and scholars.
- MSI degree LIS majors gain knowledge in LIS service and operations, information ethics and information service management, while advancing skills in technology-focused digital content. The curriculum combines core and specialized knowledge and aligns theory and practice in a two-term capstone, preparing LIS majors for the professional workplace.
