Accelerated BS/MLIS or MSIM
Dominican University offers undergraduate students the option to complete a bachelor's degree and Master of Library and Information Science or Master of Science in Information Management in an accelerated timeframe. Dominican students with senior standing, with the consent of their academic dean or academic advisor and the director of the School of Information Studies (SOIS), may be permitted to take up to six semester hours of graduate-level courses in SOIS. It is recommended that the student take one course per semester. These six hours may be applied to both the bachelor's degree and the MLIS or MSIM degree, thereby reducing the time required to complete the master's degree. Undergraduate students interested in registering for courses in SOIS should complete a Dominican University registration form (pdf) with signatures from the director of SOIS and either their undergraduate academic dean or academic advisor.
Once these six hours are completed and the bachelor's degree earned, students who wish to continue with the MLIS or MSIM must apply and be admitted to the program.
