Q. Does the Post-Master's Certificate replace the MLIS?
A. No. In order to work in a library or archives you need an MLIS from an ALA accredited program. The Post-Master's Certificate is for those who have been working for a while and who want to update their skills.
Q. Is there financial aid?
Q. I have just completed my MLIS? Will the Post-Master's Certificate help me find a job?
A. The Post-Master's Certificate is not aimed at recent MLIS graduates. It is for those who have been out of school for a while and working and want to update their skills. Recent graduates would be best served by obtaining practical experience - perhaps even volunteering in a LIS or archives environment.
Q. Can I just take one or two classes?
A. No. There is no way to just take one or two classes.
Q. Can I take courses from different areas?
A. No. You must select a particular pathway and take the courses listed for that pathway.
Q. Can I request a class with a specific instructor?
A. No. We cannot guarantee a particular instructor for any class.
