Dual M.S. in Library and Information Science with NYU

Format: Campus

Program Description:

In collaboration with New York University (NYU), the Palmer School of Library and Information Science at LIU offers a unique 52-credit dual master's degree program that prepares subject specialist/scholar-librarians for careers in academic and research institutions or as information specialists in a specialized library or information center. The program grants an ALA-accredited Master of Science in Library and Information Science from LIU's Palmer School and a Master of Arts or Science from NYU's Graduate School of Arts and Science (GSAS) or from three programs within NYU's Steinhardt School: Costume Studies, Food Studies or Media, Culture, and Communication.


  • Students take approximately 13 fewer credits than would be required if they pursued each master's degree separately.
  • Students are able to take Palmer School courses in Manhattan at the NYU Bobst Library or at LIU Post on Long Island. All NYU   courses are taught at NYU’s Washington Square Manhattan campus.
  • Students select from among numerous NYU GSAS programs or NYU Steinhardt School’s approved programs and enroll simultaneously at the LIU Palmer School.
  • Specially designed mentorship program with NYU Libraries' library subject specialists offers professional guidance and experience throughout the duration of the program.
