Master of Information Certificates (MI/Cert)

These Certificates are limited to students enrolled in the Master of Information (MI) program at Dalhousie University. 

Do you want to demonstrate achievement in a defined area of information management? Do you want to align your learning with specific career goals? Consider completing a MI Certificate.

Our Master of Information (MI) degree is versatile, giving students the knowledge and skills to work in many sectors and organizations. The curriculum responds to the ever-changing, broad-based nature of the information management field.

For MI students wanting a more specialized learning experience, we offer a suite of MI Certificates. These Certificates offer students the ability to concentrate their studies within the following areas: Librarianship, Librarianship – Youth & Children’s Services, Archives, User-Centred Design, Information Management and Policy, and Data Management. See below for more details.

Each certificate requires completion of three Elective Courses (9 Credits). During their degree, MI students can choose to complete up to two Certificates. If an elective course is included in one Certificate, it cannot be counted towards another. The electives within the Certificates will count toward both the Certificate and the Degree.
