The Library Science program has prepared library professionals since 1939 with a high-tech/high-touch emphasis, providing a web-based course of study using new and emerging technologies. Our online program is especially attuned to the needs of non-traditional students and is designed for students seeking employment as librarians and information professionals in Pre-K-12 schools, universities, community colleges, and public libraries. All students are eligible for North Carolina Public Library Certification upon completion of the MLS degree requirements. The MLS degree program is NCATE/AASL recognized and has achieved candidacy for accreditation by the American Library Association.
Candidacy status is an indication that the Library Science Program has voluntarily committed to participating in the ALA accreditation process and is actively seeking accreditation. Candidacy does not indicate that the program is accredited nor does it guarantee eventual accreditation of the program.
