CAS in School Media

Students who already possess an accredited master's degree in library and information science can be certified as school library media specialists by completing the specified curriculum requirements. Students must first undergo a thorough review of their graduate library science degree transcript to determine if the core graduate and undergraduate course requirements have been fulfilled. If all requirements have not been met, additional courses will be required.

For more information about our graduation rates for students who complete this CAS without also being in a masters program, the median debt of these students who completed the program, and other important information visit the Syracuse University Office of Financial Aid and Scholarship Programs gainful employment listings.
