Instructional Design and Technology with a Concentration in School Library Media Specialist Certification (M.A.)
Nationally Recognized Program NCATE/AECT
Program Director: Angela Brisini, M.A.
Jubilee Hall Room 471
The School Library Media Specialist (SLMS) program prepares K-12 School Library Media Specialists to be certified by the State of New Jersey. We are the first New Jersey University, approved by the state, to offer a three-track
program-one track for certified teachers, a second for students without teacher certification, and a third for professional librarians-that leads to full licensure as a school library media specialist. Courses are offered in Blended, Online, and Traditional Classroom settings.
The SLMS program provides courses that fulfill the NJ State certification requirements with the technology orientation sought by many school districts today. Graduates are fully certified to administer K through 12 school library
media centers. Our program includes the most current courses and technologies in the field to prepare candidates to become school library media specialists who are technology leaders.
Programs are offered at the master’s level. The program contains three tracks-track one for candidates with a standard NJ instructional certificate, track two for candidates without a standard NJ instructional certificate and track three for professional librarians who desire to be certified as school library media specialists.
For Candidates without a Standard New Jersey Instructional Certificate
The following courses, required for certification, are offered at lease twice each year. Usually, they are scheduled at times different from the SLMS courses. You may overlap one of these courses with a SLMS course to accelerate completion of program or take them at the end of your SLMS program.
SLMS Certification for Professional Librarians (Requires M.L.S. or M.A. in Library Science)
Applicants with an M.L.S. or a master’s degree in library science will have their transcripts evaluated. A personal plan for acquiring the SLMS licensure will be designed for you based on your previous course work. Students must take at least 15 credits at Seton Hall to receive the state licensure. Students will only take those courses that they have not taken in another program
