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.
