nformation is a key resource for individual, organizational, national and international development. It must therefore be generated, processed, stored, and disseminated. However, because it is a non-dynamic resource, the above activities cannot happen by themselves. Therefore, there must exist a body of information professionals with extensive theory (knowledge) and training (competence and skills) in order to effectively manage this information based on Christian values and principles. The Masters Programme has three main areas of specialization: Information Organization (Library Studies), Records and Archives Management and Information & Communication and trains professionals in all areas.

Topics within course contents include: information and knowledge management, digitization of Information, management of information systems and services, preservation and conservation of information materials, critical and creative thinking, records & archives management, and knowledge organization, among others.

Graduates of the Master of Human Resource Management in Education may pursue a teaching or research career related to Library and Information Science.
