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 (in any of approximately 54 programs) from NYU's Graduate School of Arts and Sciences or from three programs within NYU's Steinhardt School: Costume Studies, Food Studies or Media, Culture, and Communication.

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 (see above) 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.
About the Program Academic librarians traditionally need two master’s degrees—a subject master’s and the MSLIS. Our dual degree with NYU offers this opportunity. Students apply to LIU’s Palmer School and NYU’s Graduate School of Arts and Science or NYU’s Steinhardt School of Media, Culture, and Communication. Once admitted to both universities, students apply to be a part of this unique program that offers a mentorship under the direction of a subject specialist librarian here at NYU’s Bobst Library. The entire program is offered at Palmer’s NYU site in Bobst Library. Students take a total of 13 fewer credits in the dual degree program than if they took each master’s separately.
