Graduate

Russian and East European Studies & Master of Information Science

This dual degree combines the Master of Information Science and the Master of Arts in Russian and East European Studies, offered by IU’s Russian and East European Institute. The program blends information skills, foreign language proficiency, and area expertise to prepare you for careers at universities, libraries, corporations, archives, digital collections, nonprofits, and governments.

You’ll also earn two degrees in fewer credit hours—and less time—than it would take to earn them separately.

How to Apply

You must apply for admission to—and meet the admission requirements for—both programs. See our program’s information for domestic students and international students.

Requirements (Minimum of 54 Credit Hours)

M.I.S. Requirements (18 cr.)

You must also complete the digital literacy requirement.

M.I.S. Electives (12 cr.)

M.A. Requirements (24 cr.)

The Russian and East European Institute provides information about the M.A. requirements.

Graduation

You will graduate after you finish both degrees—the degrees must be awarded simultaneously.

Tuition Rates

Different Indiana University schools charge different graduate tuition rates. For dual degrees, you will be coded in one of the two schools and pay that school’s tuition rate. To switch to the other school’s tuition rate, contact that department’s recorder as you near the halfway point in your program.
