The combination of the two degrees will prepare you for a career managing a library, information center, or information system with a global perspective. The cultural and language skills you’ll acquire in Spanish will make you uniquely employable as a librarian or information specialist once you graduate with your master’s degree.
The rapid transformation fueled by technological innovation and ever-evolving societal expectations for information is creating new opportunities for information professionals.
The combined bachelor and master’s degree program in Spanish and M.S. Library and Information Science provides job opportunities from two complementary disciplines. This program prepares you for emerging job opportunities in a variety of traditional and non-traditional settings:
In addition to the job opportunities available to a Library and Information Science graduate, your knowledge of Spanish culture and language will uniquely position you as an information professional in special information organizations, such as those focusing on Italian collections, museums, archives, and media.
In our commitment to preparing you for the evolving workforce, this dual degree program will develop your expertise in some of the most sought-after job skills involving collaboration, communication, knowledge management, advocacy, research, and project management.
While enrolled in the program, you’ll be able to gain real-world experience through an internship, which most employers look for on an applicant’s resume. St. John’s maintains relationships with host sites throughout New York City and beyond to help you find an internship placement that suits your unique interests and career goals.
