The Master of Education in School Library and Information Technologies program is developed for the 21st Century and introduces a new model for program development.
The curriculum was created by some of Pennsylvania's most noteworthy leaders in school libraries and reflects the latest integration of educational theory and practice. Experts in course content are sought from across the US to teach and facilitate courses. Currently there are 16 instructors from six states.
It is the product of a close working relationship among the Pennsylvania Department of Education, members of the Pennsylvania School Librarians Association and Mansfield University to meet the need for certified school librarians with a Master’s degree.
This interactive, web-based learning environment involves audio, video and interactive online discussions and is fully supported by other university services.
The Master of Education in School Library and Information Technologies program is certified by the Pennsylvania Department of Education and accredited by NCATE and the Middle States Commission. Due to our exclusive focus on school libraries, the program does not seek accreditation by the American Library Association (which requires course work to prepare all types of librarians, not just school librarians), but is a nationally recognized NCATE-AASL Reviewed & Approved School Library Media Education Program.
