Program Overview

The online Master of Library Science degree is designed to prepare competent professionals for school librarianship.

Our library science courses are founded in a variety of professional library skills and utilize the latest advances in technology and information literacy to prepare students to collaborate with teachers, manage multimedia collections and maintain a successful library. With cutting-edge knowledge of technology and information design, our students graduate as leaders and models, ready to fill any of the many different roles available in a school library, such as school librarian, teacher-librarian, or technology coordinator, to name a few.

Students who already have a masters degree, a valid teaching certificate, and two years of teaching experience may pursue a School Librarian Certification, a 24-hour program available online and on campus.

โ€œThe professors have been extremely helpful and have made sure that everything we study is relevant to managing a library media center. I believe SHSU has provided me with a very valuable education, and I will be sharing my experience with anyone who asks.โ€
