Pursue your interests and advance your career
Do you already have a master's degree in library and information science? Do you want to update your skills, gain greater specialization, or redirect your career without pursuing a PhD? The Certificate of Advanced Study (CAS) provides the flexibility and expert faculty guidance to help you expand your professional reach.
What specializations are available?
Work with our experienced advisors to develop a specialization based on your interests. Examples of specializations include library and information center administration, information technology, and information management, or a specific library function such as children's services, reference and instruction, or technical services. If you want to gain greater specialization as a school librarian, the CAS School Librarian Licensure program will help you reach your goal. In addition, our Certificate in Teaching Media Literacy prepares high school teachers to teach statewide media literacy requirements.
