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, beginning in Spring 2020. 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 two-day institute and a one-day institute at the Manchester City Library, New Hampshire, with the remainder of the instruction delivered online.  The first Institutue will be held January 11-12, 2020. The second Institute will be held June 6, 2020.  There will also be various on-site events available throughout the three states, including advising sessions and activities at the state association meetings.

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. 

Students may begin the program now, but will be required to attend the institutes in Texas or at another cohort location.
