School Library Media Specialist Endorsement
The School of Library and Information Science at Wayne State University offers the coursework necessary for full K-12 endorsement for school library media specialists. Study for the Master of Library and Information Science (MLIS) degree requires 36 credit hours; more coursework may be needed for full endorsement.
Students completing the MLIS degree and wishing to obtain endorsement as a School Library Media (SLM) specialist in the State of Michigan, must meet requirements for both the MLIS degree and SLM endorsement. Students are encouraged to meet with a SLM advisor early in their program to be certain all requirements will be completed appropriately. A valid Michigan teaching certificate is required for State of Michigan SLM endorsement.
Please note: After Winter 2013, the School will begin offering LIS 7310 and LIS 7320 online every other Spring/Summer semester. The next anticipated offering after this winter will be Spring/Summer 2014 and subsequent even year Spring/Summer semesters (e.g. SS 2016).
