M.A. in African Studies and M.L.S. in Library Science

Add an M.A. in African studies to your M.L.S.

The M.A. in African studies is offered through the African Studies Program, which has long been recognized as one of the leading centers for the interdisciplinary study of Africa. It's part of the Hamilton Lugar School of Global and International Studies.

When you pair the M.A. in African studies with an M.L.S., you’ll develop powerful information navigation skills combined with knowledge and research experience in African studies.

This pairing will prepare you for a career at a university or library, in business, in international relations, or in international development for a nonprofit.

Estimate your tuition and fees

IU’s tuition and fees tool allows you to forecast the cost of credit hours and mandatory fees for your ILS graduate education.

To be considered full time, you must enroll in at least nine credit hours. Anything less is considered part time, which is an option for all students. You can also choose to enroll in more than nine credits if it better suits your goals.

Credit hour fees are different in every school. To get the best estimate of how much your tuition will cost each semester, search tuition rates for both of your dual-degree programs.
