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 in Michigan. Study for the Master of Library and Information Science (MLIS) degree requires 36 credit hours; more coursework may be needed for full endorsement.
SLIS cannot recommend School Library Media endorsement for students outside the state of Michigan.
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: The School offers LIS 7310 and LIS 7320 online every even year during the Spring/Summer semester.
