The Degrees of MA/MLIS (Digital Humanities) [Graduate]

The Digital Humanities Program and the School of Library and Information Studies offer an inter-faculty combined MA in Digital Humanities/MLIS that students can complete within three years. Students pursuing the joint degrees must take ★12 in required Digital Humanities courses (DH 500 , DH 510 , DH 520 , and DH 530 ) and ★6 in Digital Humanities options. They must also take ★18 in required Library and Information Studies courses (LIS 501 , LIS 502 , LIS 503 , LIS 504 , and LIS 505  and LIS 597 ) and ★9 in LIS options. Students are strongly encouraged to take the required Digital Humanities courses during their first year. Students must also complete a thesis. The student’s thesis committee shall normally include faculty members from both programs.

Students wishing to apply for the inter-faculty combined degrees need only to fill out one online application form by selecting “MA/MLIS” as the program. The application will be directed to the Digital Humanities portal and then forwarded to the School of Library and Information Studies if the applicant is accepted into the Digital Humanities program first. Students must satisfy the entrance requirements for both programs. Administrators of the two programs will consult regarding admission to the combined degrees.
