Information Sessions

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

UBC 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 MAS/LIS, an interdisciplinary Master of Children’s Literature (MACL), and PhD. We are ranked first in Canada, and fourth in the world for graduate education in library and information management.

Our information session is an excellent opportunity to learn more about our programs, course options, career pathways, outcomes and the admissions process. Each information session also covers iSchool hands-on learning, or experiential learning opportunities, and introduces you to the iSchool student experience. Applications for all programs are now open, due January 15, 2019 to begin your program in September 2019.

If you have questions about our information sessions, please contact the UBC iSchool Educational Services Coordinator.

Instructions for accessing webinars, as well as a recording of the webinar for later viewing, will be sent to all registrants.
