Interest in Library Science: MLIS first or straight to PhD?

Recommended Posts

Hi, everyone.

I'm a former high school English teacher, and I was thinking of going back to school for library science. I would love to become an academic librarian at a university, specializing in English literature. I already have a Master of Arts in English. 

A part of me wants to go for the PhD in Library Science; it's always been a personal goal of mine to pursue a doctorate. I'm just not sure if I should get an MLIS first, especially because I already have a Master's degree. I just know that I need to have an MLIS if I want to become a librarian. 

Any advice will be greatly appreciated. Thank you in advance!
