M.A. in English and M.L.S. in Library Science

Add an M.A. in English to your M.L.S.

The M.A. in English is offered through the Department of English in IU’s College of Arts and Sciences.

Because information and language go hand in hand, this combination of degrees will provide you with a strong preparation for careers in academic libraries, public libraries, nonprofits, governmental organizations, and the private sector. You’ll become proficient in a variety of reading topics, including literary history, lit theory, form, and genre.

Estimate your tuition and fees

IU’s tuiton 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.
