Nevada-Utah Cohort



Nevada-Utah Cohort

The Department of Information Science will begin a seventh Nevada/Utah Program Cohort in the Fall of 2017. The department is committed to the cohort approach because of the structure and community that it provides to graduate students. You can earn your Master’s of Science degree in Library Science or Information Science by completing our ALA accredited program, through our unique blended and online format. Students will be required to attend two Onsite Institutes during the first and second semesters and complete the rest of the degree online!  The Onsite Institutes include a four-day weekend to be held in September 2017 and a two-day weekend to be held in January 2018 with the remainder of the instruction delivered online. This program is available to persons living in Nevada or Utah, as well as the surrounding states.

Onsite Institute Blended Learning

The Onsite Institute portion of the Master’s program includes an orientation, technology training, instruction in the Master’s program core courses, and academic advising as well as social activities and time to network with your classmates and the UNT/IS faculty. The UNT cohort learning approach helps you make connections with your colleagues and prepares you for your future as a librarian or information professional. 

Applications are now being accepted for admissions to the cohort. Information regarding the application process can be found by visiting the Admissions Process page.
