Details, Transcripts, Payment, & Financial Aid
We have four options for you. Select the approach that best fits your needs.
- Non-Degree Graduate Student
Contact Dr. Ann Ewbank for program information. This program is geared to licensed teachers who want to obtain the school library media endorsement or teachers seeking school library media professional development. Each summer a special EDCI 580 is available which is open to all teachers.
- Library Media Certificate
Contact Dr. Ann Ewbank for program information. This program is geared to licensed teachers who want to obtain the school library media endorsement or teachers seeking school library media professional development.
- Master’s degree in Curriculum and Instruction, Professional Educator Option. The 21 credits in the library certificate program will count toward this degree. Contact the director, Dr. Ann Ewbank, for additional information or visit the Curriculum & Instruction website.
- Take the "core" courses needed for certification in your state
Enter as a non-degree graduate student and take only the courses that you need to meet your state certification requirements in order to earn continuing educaiton credits. In this situation, you will simply register for the courses that you need for your state and then process your own certification through your state agency. Since some states only require 18 cr. of library media courses, this might be a good approach. Problems can occur if the students do not fully ascertain their state requirements and your "certification" will likely not be recognized outside of your own state. Registration for continuing education courses is processed through Extended University, but official transcripts are obtained through the MSU Registrar's Office.
