Library Science Program Expands to Las VegasFebruary 13, 2019
Emporia State University’s library science program is expanding. A new cohort will open in fall 2019 in Las Vegas, Nevada. That makes seven programs for ESU’s School of Library and Information Management, including Sioux Falls, South Dakota, which opened in fall 2017.
Many master of library science programs are strictly online, meaning students participate in discussions, submit assignments and communicate with professors and other students online only. What makes SLIM unique is its blended classroom approach. This hybrid program allows students the flexibility of the online component with an interactive, face-to-face, classroom experience.
While all courses are facilitated online for the full semester, six core courses each have two Friday evening and all-day Saturday class weekends during the semester. Faculty teach these classes in person, allowing for direct interaction between fellow students, instructors and the regional director.
“SLIM has a long history of commitment in the profession of librarianship since 1902, and we believe we offer a great opportunity for future professional librarians in Las Vegas and its surrounding areas,” said Dr. Wooseob Jeong, dean of SLIM. “The Las Vegas cohort’s in-person classes will be held at College of Southern Nevada Charleston Campus.”
