VT-NH-ME Cohort


In collaboration with the Manchester City Library, the Department of Information Science is offering a Master's of Science in Library Science (LS) or Information Science (IS) to a cohort of students in Vermont, New Hampshire, and Maine. The cohort approach combines intensive on-site instruction and social events with a highly interactive online experience to build and sustain a vibrant learning community.

Onsite instruction includes a four-day institute (January 12-15, 2018) and a two-day institute (June 2-3, 2018) at the Manchester, NH City Library, with the remainder of the instruction delivered online.  There will also be various on-site events available throughout the three states, including advising sessions and activities at the state association meetings.

Onsite and virtual information sessions will be held in the spring, summer, and fall of 2017.  See “Information Sessions” link on this site or contact one of the persons below.

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 School for its outreach efforts.
