Posted on | December 10, 2010 | Comments Off

For the fourth consecutive year, the school library media specialization in the Mānoa Library and Information Science Graduate Program has been recognized as one of the top 10 programs in the nation by the U.S. News and World Report in its “America’s Best Graduate Schools 2011” issue. The program was ranked 8th in the top 10.

The graduates of the LIS Program make up 85 percent of the Hawaiʻi DOE’s school library workforce. Several of them have received national recognition.

“The LIS faculty have continued to maintain a high quality program for many years,” says College of Natural Science Dean Alan Teramura. “Their peers acknowledged this during the program’s last accreditation review, when it was granted the maximum six years.”

U.S. News and World Report analyzes more than 12,000 different graduate program areas for this special report. Rankings are based on expert opinions regarding program quality and statistical indicators that measure the quality of the faculty, research, and students.
