Dominican University School of Information Studies (SOIS)


Dominican’s School of Information Studies (SOIS) has long been a presence on Chicago’s higher education landscape, first offering library science programs in the 1930s. We began with an undergraduate library science degree in 1930 and introduced the master’s in library science in 1949. Our school works to stay ahead of trends, expanding its library science graduate programs to encompass the modern breadth of library and information science. In addition to the MLIS, Dominican offers a Master of Science in Information Management (MSIM), a Master of Professional Studies (MPS) degree for MLIS holders working in the field, a PhD in Library and Information Science, and a variety of professional certificates in in-demand specializations, as well as an undergraduate major and a minor in informatics (BSI).

But even with all the changes we’ve seen since the 1930s our values and mission remain the same—to educate true innovators and library leaders who can have a positive impact on their library or institution every day.
