Advanced Study in K-12 School Library Media Certificate (Post Master's)

The School of Library and Information Science offers an advanced certificate program as an opportunity for school library media specialists already in the field to update and upgrade their professional skills. This program is tailored to those school library media specialists who hold an M.L.S./M.L.I.S. degree (or another approved graduate degree in education), school library media licensure and standard teaching credentials. The certificate is aimed at those who are interested in expanding their administrative and technology skills. Each program is individually designed and leads to a certificate in the advanced study of school librarianship. Students will be awarded the Certificate of Advanced Study in K-12 School Library Media upon successful completion of 18 semester hours of coursework. Additional "refresher" courses may be required on a case-by-case basis.
