A Master's Degree in Library Science is required for librarian positions. To obtain a master's degree, you must also have a bachelor's degree in any subject. To learn more about what it takes to become a librarian, check out the Occupational Outlook Handbook.

Librarians often work with Library Technicians or Assistants (a similar occupation). These positions require varying levels of education. Some have high school diplomas, others have specialized post secondary degrees or certificates.

If you are interested in pursing a career in librarianship, I encourage you to investiage your local options:

Undergraduate Programs and Certificates

Graduate Programs

If you have any further questions about careers in library science, feel free to ask a librarian at the Reference Desk.
