Virginia-West Virginia Cohort

Overview

The University of North Texas Department of Information Science is offering the Master's of Science in Library Science (LS) or Information Science (IS) to a sixth cohort of students in Virginia and West Virginia. The cohort approach combines intensive on-site instruction at the Virginia Commonwealth University Library and social events with a highly interactive online experience to build and sustain a vibrant learning community.

Onsite instruction includes a two-day institute (January 5-6, 2019) and a one-day institute (May 25, 2019), with the remainder of the instruction delivered online.   There will also be various on-site events available throughout Virginia and West Virginia including advising sessions and activities at the State Library Associations.

The University of North Texas Department of Information Science has a long history of providing high-quality programs at sites that are often many miles from the home campus in Denton. In receiving its current accreditation renewal by the American Library Association, the Committee on Accreditation commended the Department for its outreach efforts.

Each of these individuals is committed to the Virginias Cohort and can be reached by e-mail, postal mail, fax, and phone.
