Offered through the USC Marshall School of Business in partnership with USC Libraries, the 100% online Master of Management in Library and Information Science (MMLIS) uniquely combines strength in LIS-based course work with management, communication and business fundamentals.

The USC MMLIS is accredited by the American Library Association and provides students with a robust leadership, management, and library and information sciences focus for students. Each course is taught through real-world, experience-based learning and teamwork, with faculty support and guidance. This approach encourages critical and creative thinking and the development of the skills necessary for high-level careers in the library and information science fields.

MMLIS courses are taught by faculty from various USC schools and departments, including the Marshall School of Business and USC Libraries as well as accomplished practitioners in the field. Cohorts are admitted in the fall and spring semesters. Classes are also available in the summer for continuing students. The program can be completed in as few as 20 months.

For professionals who hold a master’s in library science and seek to advance their careers, the online Graduate Certificate in Library and Information Management is offered to help develop advanced leadership and management skills.
