  • Library Science Degree with Music Concentration

    • Library and information professionals have expertise in accessing, analyzing, organizing, evaluating, preserving, researching and presenting information found in all types of formats. They are no longer solely concerned with books, as they are responsible for managing digital data and various new modes of information. While academic librarians work in academic institutions and public librarians are employed at public libraries, other information professionals are working in corporations, law firms, and government institutions in a variety of roles. For example, prospect researchers are working in development or advancement offices on researching and identifying donor prospects, who are individuals, corporations or foundations. Information professionals are the experts we need in the information age. The Master of Information (MI) program is accredited by the American Library Association.
