Mansfield University's Master of Education in School Library and Information Technologies (M.Ed.) is an exciting program designed around the AASL publications, Empowering Learners and Standards for 21st Century Learners.

The program is practical and offered 100% online via Desire2Learn, a powerful web-based course management system. The program is a nationally recognized NCATE-AASL Reviewed & Approved School Library Media Education Program. Over the past three years, 97 percent of the graduate students in this program have passed the PRAXIS II “Library Media Specialist” test required in many states to become a certified school librarian. Almost all SL&IT students work full-time while taking classes. The average student takes 2-3 years to complete the program.

If you are a certified teacher in Pennsylvania, successful completion of this program and required tests will enable you to add library science K-12 certification to your credentials. Teachers in other states may earn Pennsylvania certification and request reciprocity from their state’s department of education or complete Mansfield’s program as part of their home state’s requirements. Approximately 50 percent of students enrolled in this degree program are out-of-state.
