Library Media Endorsement

The Gerald R. Sherratt Library offers library media online programs accessible to students from any location. Though the majority of students in the LM program are seeking Library Media Endorsement to become school librarians, we also have students seeking a Library Media minor or who take LM courses secondary to a general interest in librarianship or for transfer credit to other library programs. Students may complete a Master of Education degree with a library media emphasis or they may complete either a school library media undergraduate or Graduate Endorsement independently.
