Distance Education

Description ...

Distributed learning is an instructional model that involves various information technologies to help students learn. Over the past thirty years SLIS has offered high-quality instruction for distance and campus-based learners. Our ALA-accredited program, directed by our award-winning faculty and staff, has sent many successful librarians into information agencies and cultural institutions (e.g., museums, archives, and historical societies).

Distributed learning supports the following degree programs:

Master of Library and Information Science (MLIS) arrpw

Specialist in Library and Information Science arrpw

Certificate of Graduate Study in Library and Information Science arrpw

Whether you choose to join us in Columbia or stay in your community, distributed learning provides access to our excellent school.

Delivery ...

Blended Campus – Campus-based learners can anticipate several potential methods of instruction. Blended campus can mean live lectures, taped lectures, and self-directed coursework online. It can also include Saturday onsite sessions, and possibly face-to-face courses on campus.

Blended Online – Distance-based learners can anticipate the following methods of instruction: live lectures, taped lectures, and self-directed coursework online.

Most courses are online, and our faculty members employ a variety of technologies that allow our students to interact, access resources, listen to lectures and complete assignments.  Through these delivery methods our distributed learning courses feature opportunities to engage with classmates, instructors and the professional community.
