Because skilled information use is crucial to the success of business, government and individuals, there is great demand for professionals who can manage information at an advanced level.
Combined, the Librarianship and Corporate Information Management majors lead to a professionally accredited qualification in librarianship, archives and records management.
This double major teaches you to locate, evaluate and manage any information in any organisation. You’ll apply these skills to a wide range of information sources, such as print and online documents, records, social media, research data and corporate knowledge.
Through a combination of hands-on industry experience, practical project work and critical thinking within a professional theoretical framework, you will learn to evaluate client information needs and will offer future employers an expert level of information literacy.
You will also undertake two professional placements as part of this course.
Please note: This course is not available to international students studying in Australia on a student visa. Offshore international students wishing to study this course may do so online.
High achieving students may complete an additional honours year enabling them to undertake their own significant research project.

Fees for Australian and New Zealand students
What is a Commonwealth supported place (CSP)? -
A CSP is subsidised by the Australian Government. They pay part of the course fees directly to Curtin and then the
student pays the remainder. The student can defer this fee to their HECS-HELP loan.
All Australian students studying an undergraduate degree are automatically awarded a Commonwealth supported place.
Learn more about CSPs and whether you're eligible by visiting the Australian Government's StudyAssist website.
Fees are indicative first year only and are subject to passage of legislation.
*The indicative first-year fee is calculated on 200 credit points, which is the typical full-time study load per year, however some courses require additional study to be completed, in which case the fee will be higher than that shown.
This fee is a guide only. It may vary depending on the units you choose and do not include incidental fees (such as lab coats or art supplies) or the cost of your textbooks - visit other fees and charges for more information. For more information on fees and to determine your eligibility for HECS-HELP or FEE-HELP, please visit fee basics or the Study Assist website
If you're not an Australian citizen, permanent resident or New Zealand citizen, please see information for international students.
Credit for recognised learning (CRL) is the term Curtin uses to describe advanced standing, academic credit or recognition of prior learning.
You may be entitled to credit for recognised learning for formal, non-formal or informal learning.
Formal learning is learning that takes place through a structured program of learning that leads to the full or partial achievement of an officially recognised qualification. Recognised institutions include, but are not limited to, RTO providers and universities. Non-formal learning is adult and community education. Informal learning can include on the job learning or various kinds of work and life experience.
Credit can reduce the amount of study needed to complete a degree.
