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

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

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

The pairing of a master’s degree in history and an M.L.S. degree will prepare you to actively participate in the preservation, research, and dissemination of information about our past. You’ll choose from several learning tracks, including:

  • Ancient history and language acquisition
  • Russian or East European history
  • United States history
  • Arts for teachers requirements
  • History and Jewish studies
  • History and library science

Upon graduation you’ll be uniquely qualified to work in places such as a library, archive, historical society, or museum.

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.
