Library Media Licensure | Kent State University

Library Media Licensure

If you already have both a masters degree (in Education or Library Science) and your teaching license, then you may want to just add the Library/Media Licensure (#050675), without earning another Masters Degree.

If so, then this Licensure-Only program allows you to do that by completing 26 credit hours of coursework. Applicants to this program should use the non-degree application. As part of this program, students complete a one hundred hour internship experience (practicum).
