What employers like about this subject
A degree in information management or museum studies will help you gain subject-specific skills including an understanding of methods of organising information and how to identify and use relevant information sources for yourself or for other users. You will also gain useful transferable skills including research skills, written and spoken communication, IT, budgeting and project management. Information management graduates find work in industries including education, PR, IT, telecoms, recruitment, manufacturing, hospitals and libraries and archives. Most new entrants to librarian roles have a Masters or other postgraduate qualification, so whilst you can become a librarian with an undergraduate degree, this might be worth considering.
