Leep Online

Immerse yourself

Our popular Leep option is recognized for innovation, excellence, and value in online education. As a Leep student, you can earn our top-ranked MSLIS degree while managing career, family, community service, and other important responsibilities.

Leep offers a high-touch, high-tech, and high-impact educational experience. Our interactive online learning environment will allow you to be fully engaged, collaborating with faculty and other students in real time. Students are required to log in to a weekly live session in a virtual classroom where they attend class with their classmates and instructor. During this time, students will:

  • Listen to and engage in live lectures
  • Participate in discussion through the use of a microphone and live chat
  • Collaborate in small group activities
  • Present projects and/or hear from guest speakers

Leep is affordable for both residential and nonresidential students, and in particular, is the most affordable online degree on campus.

My online sessions are student centered and highly interactive, including real-time discussions, lectures interspersed with activities and Q&A, and small-group work for problem-based learning. I utilize case studies, simulations, guest speakers, and student presentations to create authentic, engaging learning experiences.

The advising team has been crucial to my success at the iSchool. My advisors have talked me through any questions or worries that I have had regarding my schedule, classes, or classwork. I love my program, and I feel so confident knowing my advisors understand my goals. They make me feel like we are part of a team.
