Clarion University’s library science programs are No. 1 in the nation, according to an extensive review by Study.com.
"We chose Clarion University of Pennsylvania to top our list not just because of its wealth of programs — there's a B.S. in Liberal Studies with a Library and Information Studies Concentration, a Master of Science in Library Science in School Library Media and an M.S.L.S. Information and Library Science — but because of the success of its students. An impressive 97 percent of Clarion M.S.L.S. grads were working in their field within six months of completing the program. Students also rave about the school's internships, online programs, and the ways in which coursework prepared them for employment."
To determine its findings Study.com, "took several data points from the U.S. Department of Education, testimonials from real students, and statistics from independent sources and tied them with the availability of library science clubs, scholarships, and professional associations. All of this information was weighed and balanced to come up with the 20 best schools in America to get a degree in library science."
