M.L.I.S./M.S. Admissions

Students are able to complete two degrees at the same time and share a limited number of credits.

Applicants must complete a separate Master of Library and Information Science application and Master of Science application. If you are currently enrolled and would like to apply for a second degree, you must do so by the end of your second semester in the program. 

You don't need to submit transcripts twice, however, and the same letters of recommendation may be used for both applications, with permission from the letter writers. For more information, contact the School at slisinfo@kent.edu or 330-672-2782.

In addition, some state laws may impose limitations that could affect a program of study, including inability to offer on-ground internships. Since this compliance undergoes continuous updates, non-Ohio residents interested in pursuing any School of Library and Information Science programs are advised to consult official Kent State information on state authorization before applying to this program.
