The Department of Information Studies was established in the academic year 1987-1988, to meet the needs of the Omani society for qualified specialists in the field of Libraries and Information Science. The department began by offering a Bachelor’s degree in Information Studies followed by the Master’s degree in Library and Information Science, and recently the PhD in Information Studies.
During teaching activities, special attention is given to the practical application of Information and Communications Technology. Thus, in addition to lectures, research assignments and discussion sessions, emphasis is placed on practical training and field trips to information and learning centers, as well as on intensive practice in the department’s laboratories.
Graduates of the three programs have the opportunity to work in public, university, and special libraries, as well as in learning resource centers in both public and private sectors.
