The MA in Library and Information Studies at UCL Qatar was the first degree programme of its kind in the region to be formally accredited by CILIP: the Chartered Institute of Library and Information Professionals.

The MA in Library and Information Studies at UCL Qatar provides access to a world class programme. UCL established the first programme in librarianship in the UK in 1919.

The unique strength of the UCL Qatar programme is the possibility to specialise according to a student’s specific interests in management and leadership in libraries, Arabic and Islamic librarianship or librarianship for the education sector. Students develop as leading professionals through research-based learning and international work-placement opportunities.
