Learn more about the advantages of pairing the M.A. in folklore and ethnomusicology with a Master of Library Science (M.L.S.) or Master of Information Science (M.I.S.) degree.

M.I.S. pairing

Here you’ll become an expert on topics such as the preservation of cultural heritage, the types of databases needed to record seldom-used and disappearing languages, alphabets, and vocabularies, and what kinds of global initiatives can help countries that have experienced disasters.

M.L.S. pairing

With this pairing, you’ll be equipped to study, preserve, and share the vernacular arts—whether you work in an academic library, at a nonprofit, or for the government.

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.
