Realize that this list includes only the courses that are most likely options for online LIS majors. It does not include courses that some students may wish to consider: graduate level courses, Teacher Preparation, or courses in BIO, BUS, MGT, MAT, and CSC that require prerequisites that most LIS majors have not completed.
