Guide your studies in a particular area or field in one of our six areas of focus.
Our areas of focus are pathways that serve as a guide to focus your studies in a particular area. Our pathways are a selection of courses based on areas of interest intended to guide your course selection; they are not formal specializations, except for the First Nations Curriculum Concentration.
The courses we outline within each pathway are not exhaustive, and we encourage you to meet with your assigned faculty advisors with questions about course offerings.
We have developed three pathways for students in the MLIS degree program: Data Services, Information Interaction and Design, and Community and Culture. The First Nations Curriculum Concentration is open to students in the MAS, MLIS or Dual programs. Lastly, the Designing For People area of focus is available to students in the MLIS program.
