The purpose of an internship is to provide students with the academic challenge of a field-based project or to provide students with practical experience in a library or information setting in which they can employ the knowledge and skills acquired during their SIRLS program of study. The internship is a type of individual study for which a student receives credits. Internships may be paid or unpaid.

The rapid growth of digital collections and online services has led to a shortage of information professionals who possess the technical knowledge and learning skills needed to create and manage digital collections. The Digin graduate certificate program helps fill this gap by combining intensive, hands-on technology learning with a thorough grounding in the theoretical principles needed to manage large, complex digital collections. The program is offered on-line, making it available to those currently employed in the information professions as well as those seeking new career opportunities in the information professions.

Master of Arts Library & Information Science
An undergraduate degree in e-Society at the UA involves interdisciplinary curricula focused on the convergence of digital information, computation, and contemporary social life and work. Students will be well trained in sociocultural issues as well as in computer science, data analysis, information management, and related technical skills. Computer-mediated service, online collaborative work, social media use and management across health, education, business, or civic sectors, as well as information analysis.
The new M.I.S. graduates will be the architects of the information culture. They will be able to analyze, organize, manage, and manipulate information, always considering how to make the result intuitive and easy to use. They will become experts in the latest information technologies and user behaviors. At start-ups and Fortune 500 companies, for nonprofits and the government, they will be the bridge between the tech team and the rest of the organization.
The Master of Arts, with a major in Library and Information Science, can prepare a student for professional opportunities in a wide variety of environments including libraries, archives, publishing, the corporate sector, and Internet and other technology companies. The curriculum reflects the diversity of library and information environments in which students will eventually work, the populations they serve, and the disciplines of library and information science augmented by an interdisciplinary approach to knowledge and information. The Master of Arts is an American Library Association-accredited degree.
