School librarians teach literacy to children, collaborate with teachers, and give students a safe space to go. They master a broad range of multimedia in order to help people use information both effectively and efficiently, and most importantly — their work can impact a child for life.
If you’re committed to teaching literacy (digital and traditional) in K-12 schools, then our specialized graduate program in school media is for you.
We take a uniquely tech-driven and human-centered approach to understanding information in the context of social media and “fake news,” data protection and privacy, and how it’s used and shared in an educational setting.
Tailored to New York State Department of Education requirements and combined with 100 hours of fieldwork, our program prepares graduates to take certification exams and support students, educators, and school administrators alike.
