MLS Graduate Student Testimonials
The curriculum and coursework really promotes active learning and professional development. The program is also flexible, which is great for people working full-time!
I feel more competent in MLS subjects and more prepared for a career in education at the collegiate level. The program gave me confidence in my abilities and my competency of the MLS knowledge in areas that I felt I was lacking in.
Faculty knowledge is a strength of the program. They all bring something different to the table, and show excitement in teaching new information.
This program prepared me to further my career in a technical specialist position or management position by enhancing my professional and leadership skills; especially in written and verbal communication.
I am better able to find and analyze current research for information that can be applied to my work. This has already been extremely useful in my current job as we look to improve current processes.
I was never confident in my ability to write in a scholarly manner before enrolling in this program, but now feel that my writing reflects the level of my professionalism
