iSchool Introduces Accelerated School Library Media Program
The Kent State University School of Information (iSchool) is pleased to announce a summer accelerated program for the School Library Media concentration in the MLIS program. Teachers have asked for a summer program that can address two things: 1) a program that can be completed within one year (half the courses can be taken over the summer), and 2) a rigorous program that would allow them to sit for their certification exam in any state.
The Kent State iSchool has three pathways to school library licensure or MLIS:
- Licensure only program (for those who already hold a teaching certificate)
- MLIS with a K-12 School Library Media Licensure
- Dual Degree MLIS + MEd
The accelerated summer program consists of six courses during an intense schedule and is open to all students interested in a master’s degree in library and information science program, with a focus on school libraries.
If you have any questions, please contact Janna Korzenko, Director of Student Services.
