Cooperative Master’s Program
History and Library Information Studies

By proper selection of course work, a student may simultaneously earn the degrees of Master of Arts in History and Master of Library and Information Studies (M.L.I.S.).
 

Admission Requirements:

  • Results for the GREs (Graduate Record Examinations) and other requirements listed for history and library science.
  • Applicant must apply and be accepted in both programs. 
  • Students may take up to six credits of graduate work in history at Rhode Island College, and graduate students at Rhode Island College may take up to six credits of graduate work at the University of Rhode Island.
  • Students also may request permission from the graduate school to transfer up to six credits of graduate work from another university.
  • The application to each program must indicate history/library and information studies as the field of specialization.

Students may take up to six credits of graduate work in history at Rhode Island College, and graduate students at Rhode Island College may take up to six credits of graduate work at the University of Rhode Island. Students also may request permission from the graduate school to transfer up to six credits of graduate work from another university.

Program requirements:

  • Students must submit individual programs of study for the 36-credit M.L.I.S. program and the 30-credit program for the M.A. in history.
  • The integrated pursuit of the two degrees makes it possible for six credits of appropriately selected course work from one program to serve as electives in the other, and for six credits of course work to be applied in the opposite direction.
  • When planned and taken jointly, the two programs can be completed with a total of 54 credits rather than 66 credits.

 
 

Topics courses and Graduate Seminars are held once a week, almost always in the late afternoon so that students who are working or teaching in area schools will find it easier to attend. About half of our students attend full-time, and the other half take a class or two per semester. We welcome students from other graduate programs such as Education, English and Political Science. We also welcome non-degree students who need graduate work for professional development or wish to take courses for personal enrichment. Students attending school full-time generally take two years to complete the M.A. in History and three years to complete the joint History/Library program.
