About this program

MA Library and Information Management

Recognised and approved by the Chartered Institute of Library and Information Professionals (CILIP), this route prepares graduates of all disciplines for a career in the modern information society across all industries.

The taught element is equivalent to a postgraduate diploma and, as a professional qualification, enables progression to chartership in your first professional post.

Your study will focus on the principles for the organisation, retrieval and accessibility of information, and on the strategic management of information organisations, such as libraries, the information landscape, for example online and on the web, and on the development of library services of all kinds. Successful completion of a dissertation develops your knowledge of the field and skills as a researcher resulting in the award of MA. If you are studying the PGDip you will not be required to complete a dissertation.

You may undertake a placement, which we will help you to source, in information units, libraries and other relevant centres, including large corporations, local government, the National Health Service, financial and legal services. This will provide networking opportunities within the library, information and media industries.

Admission requirements

You will normally have a second class honours degree or above (or international or professional equivalent) in any discipline.

Overseas applicants will require IELTS with an overall score of 6.5 with no less than 5.5 in any category, or an equivalent accepted English qualification.
