The Certificate of Advanced Study (CAS) in Library and Information Science is open to those who hold a master's degree in library and information science or a related field. Librarians, information scientists, and others in information management enroll in the program to refresh and update their skills, gain greater specialization in their professional training, or redirect their careers from one area to another. Examples of areas of concentration include digital libraries, library and information center administration, information technology, and information management. An area of concentration might also be a specific library function such as children's services, government information, science information, or technical services. The CAS Program does not lead into the Ph.D. Program.
