eDegree: The Online M.L.I.S.
Introducing: eDegreeProficiencies and Tools for Online Students
The eDegree option is designed to provide a well-balanced schedule of classes leading to an M.L.I.S. degree for students who prefer the flexibility of online courses and the convenience of not physically attending classes in Kent or Columbus. Students are now able to complete their courses wherever and whenever they have access to the Internet.
Graduates with the M.L.I.S. degree hold various kinds of positions in libraries, information agencies, museums, cultural organizations and companies of all sorts and sizes. Many accept positions in other areas of the information field besides libraries — in research, publishing, information management, competitive business intelligence and more.
Beginning with the 2013 catalog, the M.L.I.S. degree is 37 graduate semester hours (39 graduate semester hours if pursuing the MLIS + K-12 School Library Media Licensure). For catalog years 2012 and earlier, the M.L.I.S. degree is 36 graduate semester hours. All M.L.I.S. students can begin the program in fall, spring or summer semester. Applicants should indicate in their application (Biographical Sketch form) that their attendance site will be "online."
- They can complete all coursework online in one to six years.
- They don't have to travel to a physical location to take courses.
