New MLIS Program

The Master of Library and Information Science (MLIS) program at Southern Connecticut State University (SCSU) has been granted Candidacy status by the Committee on Accreditation of the American Library Association. Candidacy status is an indication that SCSU’s MLIS program has voluntarily committed to participate in the ALA accreditation process and is actively seeking accreditation. Candidacy does not indicate that the program is accredited nor does it guarantee eventual accreditation of the program by ALA.
