The Master of Arts in History with Library and Information Science program from University of Wisconsin Milwaukee consists of 54 credits. Graduates of the program are qualified to assume positions as archivists and staff members in libraries, museums, universities, governmental agencies, and industry.


For those who pursue employment opportunities beyond archives in such institutions, knowledge of how to store, classify, and retrieve archival material will be a valuable set of skills that enhance the qualifications of the information professional.

In collaboration with several other academic units at University of Wisconsin Milwaukee, SOIS offers students the opportunity to obtain two Master’s degrees concurrently—one in Library and Information Science (MLIS) and one in a subject area, such as the History with Library and Information Science.

Degree Requirements

  • The number of degree credits needed for each of the coordinated programs is usually 12 fewer than the sum of the two programs if they were not taken simultaneously. All degree requirements of each component must be satisfied.
  • The MLIS portion of the coordinated degrees can be completed online.
  • Prerequisite to the award of either degree in this program is the simultaneous award of its counterpart degree.

MLIS Component

The Master of Library and Information Science (MLIS) component of each of the coordinated programs includes 30 credits of SOIS courses. These include the MLIS core courses (12 credits). The remaining 18 MLIS credits are selected from the School’s offerings in accordance with the student’s goals in the coordinated degree program.
