New York University has partnered with Long Island University’s Palmer School of Library and Information Science to offer a combined 52-credit dual master's degree program that prepares students for careers in the field of library science.
All students interested in joining the Dual Degree program should fill out their Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) form as soon as possible. Dual Degree students must complete a single FAFSA form with NYU as the primary institution and LIU as the secondary institution.
NYU and LIU have also been able to offer a small, one-time scholarship for all incoming new Dual Degree students over the years. The availability of this scholarship is not guaranteed and makes only a partial contribution to overall costs, but it has been a means of support for past Dual Degree entering cohorts.
University-specific scholarships and application requirements may be found on each university’s respective website:
