Since all programs are delivered conveniently online, the iSchool is a top choice among Canadian students like Simon Lum and his 70+ student peers who also hail from Canada.

The iSchool offers lifelong learning solutions, including two master’s degree programs. Library staff members and paraprofessionals may be especially interested in the school’s Master of Library and Information Science (MLIS) program, which is fully accredited by the American Library Association.

A doctoral program is also offered in partnership with Queensland University of Technology, one of Australia’s top research institutions.
