Julie Michener writes "The American Library Association's Committee on Accreditation has granted Candidacy status to the College of St. Catherine's Master of Library and Information Science program. Following the two-year Candidacy period, external evaluators will make a site visit and report to the Committee on Accreditation. A decision for accreditation is expected in January 2009.
Currently the College of St. Catherine offers a MLIS degree in cooperation with Dominican University in River Forest, Illinois. Courses are taken on both the College of St. Catherine and Dominican University campuses and the accredited degree is awarded by Dominican University.
With campuses in St. Paul and Minneapolis, Minnesota, the College of St. Catherine is the largest and most comprehensive Catholic college for women in the country. Through a diversity of programs, the college offers the intimacy of a four-year liberal arts college and the opportunity to complete baccalaureate, associate and master's degrees in a variety of health-care specialties, liberal arts and professional programs.
