Your faculty advisor will help you plan a program of study and complete the academic requirements for the MLIS degree. Your initial advisor is named in your letter of acceptance, and is a faculty member whose area of expertise corresponds to what we know of your interests and background. Consult with your advisor as early as possible in your first semester, or before registering for elective courses. Your advisor can be reached by telephone or email. You may also request academic advice from other faculty members, including the director. Faculty telephone numbers and e-mail addresses can be found on the Faculty page. Your interests may change, and you may change advisors at any time. Change of advisor forms are available on the Academic Forms page or in hard copy format in GSLIS office.
Students pursuing other tracks take the same 21 required credits (seven core courses) and choose an additional 21 credits of electives appropriate to their aspirations.
Talk to your advisor about what track best fits your professional goals and desires.
