iSchool Information Session open house


Are you a prospective student interested in learning more about our programs?

We are holding two upcoming information sessions for those interested in applying to our programs. The iSchool is an internationally ranked, multi-disciplinary school, offering one-of-a-kind graduate programs: Master of Library and Information Studies (MLIS), Master of Archival Studies (MAS), Dual MLIS/MAS, an interdisciplinary Master of Children’s Literature (MACL), and PhD. The iSchool is ranked first in Canada, and fourth in the world for graduate education in library and information management.

Each information session will cover information about our programs, course options and career pathways, career outcomes, admissions process, experiential learning opportunities and an overview of the student experience. Applications for our January 2019 intake of Master of Library Studies program is due June 1. Applications for our September 2019 intake for all programs will begin in the fall.
