Integrated BS/MS Program: Computer Science or Information Technology (BS)/Library and Information Science (MS)

An integrated program permits students to obtain their BS and MS degrees in less time than it would take to do the programs separately. Students begin the MS degree program during their junior year.

Computer Science or Information Technology (BS)/Library and Information Science (MS): 3 + 1 Program

The world of library and information science is changing rapidly. No longer just a home for printed texts, a “library” is any place where creating, storing, and accessing traditional print and emerging digital resources come together, where people seek information and insights to help them accomplish their goals, and where communities come together to share in information discovery and dissemination.

This evolution is huge, and the vast array of careers it is creating calls for highly trained, technologically savvy information professionals. The 3 + 1 Computer Science or Information Technology / Library and Information Science Program will thoroughly prepare you to meet this opportunity.

Pairing a Bachelor of Science in Computer Science or Information Technology with a Master’s in Library and Information Science, this sought-after combination will give you a versatile technical background, as well as advanced knowledge of the principles, theories, and practices of modern librarianship, digital curation, and content management.

You will earn your Computer Science or Information Technology degree in three years in an empowering, state-of- the-art environment. Through coursework and hands-on learning, you will develop your ability to understand computing foundation and theory and to solve real-world problems through the application of technology.

Master’s level coursework in Library Science will commence by your senior year and culminate in stimulating yet practical independent studies. Our School of Library and Information Science (SLIS) is ranked 12th in the country by U.S. News & World Report. The faculty are recognized leaders in their fields, while our prime Boston location opens the door to hundreds of prestigious internships, and our on-campus and online course offerings provide flexibility for students.
