The MAS was recently approved by the Board of Regents and is housed in the College of Information and Mathematical Sciences (CIMS) at Clayton State University. The MAS degree program at Clayton State constitutes a broader study of archival science than students would receive either in a master's-level degree program in library and information science or a public history graduate program. In addition to traditional archival courses, the MAS program emphasizes the influence of information technology on the creation, preservation, and access to records. The program also provides for a strong emphasis on experiential learning that will help students to apply what they are learning in actual archival work situations. This innovative blend of traditional knowledge, technology, and experiential learning makes Clayton State's MAS program a uniquely broad and contemporary study of archival science that is not offered at any other college or university in Georgia or the Southeast.
Accredited by the Board of Regents and the Univeristy System of Georgia.
