You can do THAT with an MSLIS?

The Master of Science in Library and Information Science takes people to unexpected places, like Marvel Comics, Lucasfilms, the Conjuring Arts Research Center, the Ralph Lauren library, the N.Y. Daily News, the Frick, the Whitney, the American Museum of Natural History, the Met, MoMA, the Keith Haring Foundation, the N-Y Historical Society, Viacom, Sony, hospitals and media centers of all types and more. You already figured you could wind up in libraries, colleges, universities, elementary and secondary schools, but information everywhere needs managing and that’s what our graduates do! Every one of these places has recently hired Palmer grads.

Have you been thinking about this degree for years? Don’t fight it any longer! Take a look at the Palmer School where information managers (aka librarians) go on to work in so many exciting and rewarding careers.
