Prospective Students Experience Online Programs at Open Houses

Wednesday, October 12th, 2011

Thanks to Peggy Cabrera for forwarding the following information for prospective SJSU SLIS students:

The San Jose State University School of Library and Information Science is hosting live open house events for prospective students. If you know someone who is considering earning a Master of Library and Information Science (MLIS) degree, or is interested in pursuing a career in Teacher Librarianship, please extend our invitation.

The open house events are a convenient way to learn more about our School, our graduate degree programs, and the variety of courses we offer to prepare students for a multitude of career pathways. The events are held online via web conferencing, giving participants a taste of our sophisticated online learning environment.

We know how busy schedules can get this time of year, so we are offering three open houses for prospective students interested in learning more about our ALA-accredited MLIS program. Open houses will be held on October 11, November 1, and December 6, 2011. Faculty and students will host the open houses, and time for questions will be available.

For those interested in pursuing a career in Teacher Librarianship, a special open house highlighting the Teacher Librarian career pathway will be held on Tuesday, October 18.

If you know someone who is interested in earning their doctoral degree in Library and Information Science, please spread the word that our School is also hosting an online open house event for the San Jose Gateway PhD program on Tuesday, November 8. Program Coordinator Dr. Sandra Hirsh and faculty from Queensland University of Technology will host this free event.

Our School’s open house events are scheduled from 5:30 – 6:30 p.m. Pacific Time. Space is limited, and advance registration is required.
