Library Media

Program Objectives

This program is geared toward licensed teachers who want to obtain the school library media endorsement. This certification program/endorsement can only be added to an existing teaching license.

We have received official approval from accreditation officials in Alaska, Colorado, Idaho, Montana, Oregon, South Dakota, North Dakota, Washington, and Wyoming. Many other states accept our program as well. Contact your state's Department of Education to ensure that the program is accepted. Our education programs are accredited by the Montana Board of Public Education, the Teacher Education Accreditation Council/Council for the Accreditation of Educator Preparation (TEAC/CAEP), and we participate in the National Association of State Directors of Teacher Education and Certification's (NASDTEC) Interstate Contract.

Additionally, the Library Media program offers an option to earn a Masters degree (MEd) in Curriculum & Instruction after completion of all Library Media coursework. The Masters portion involves completion of 9 additional credits past the 21 required by the Library Media Certificate program, and these courses are also offered online. A student must apply to the full MEd program either initially or before 9 credits of Library Media coursework have been completed.
