Dual Degrees and Specializations (for Master's Students)
Folklore and Ethnomusicology (M.A.) and Master of Information Science (M.I.S.) Dual Degree

To graduate under the dual-degree option, the two degrees must be awarded simultaneously.
- Master of Information Science (36 cr.): 21 credit hours of required M.I.S. Foundation courses, 15 credit hours of SLIS Elective courses.
- Master of Arts in Folklore and Ethnomusicology (21 cr.): consult the Department of Folklore and Ethnomusicology.
Students must apply for admission to the master’s programs of both the School of Library and Information Science and the Department of Folklore and Ethnomusicology. Admissions criteria established for each program must be met. For specific M.A. requirements, see the University Graduate School Bulletin.
