This program of study covers all the library school’s core competencies with a special focus in youth services. This degree does not lead to certification to work in a K-12 school library.
In addition to completing the 36 credit program of study, students submit a portfolio proving that they have met the school’s core competencies. This serves as the program’s capstone experience.
