College Rank has named Clarion University third among the Best Bachelor’s Degrees in Library Science in the nation.
College Rank considers potential salary, accreditation and overall affordability when ranking these schools.
The Bachelor of Science in integrative studies, library and information studies concentration, prepares students to work as paraprofessionals and provisional librarians in a variety of settings, including public libraries in Pennsylvania.
It introduces students to the exciting worlds of information management and information transfer, in both traditional and emerging venues.
The B.S. in integrative studies with a concentration in library information studies serves as an excellent preparation for studying toward a master's degree in library setting (such as Clarion's American Library Association-accredited M.S.L.S. degree), which is the recognized professional credential for the practice of librarianship.
