Our program strives to prepare school librarians to work collaboratively with teachers as well as contribute to advance learning by guiding and encouraging individual inquiry, engaging students to think critically about the world around them, as well develop a knowledge base of current technologies as tools.

The Lindenwood University Graduate School of Education offers the program of study leading to a Master of Arts in Education with emphasis in library media (school librarianship).

The Missouri Department of Elementary and Secondary Education’s certification requirements are met through the course work. Lindenwood’s School Library Media program will prepare you for professional careers as a school librarian PK-12.

Today’s school librarian is a leader who works within the school community to support and foster lifelong learning and the love of reading. Our program strives to prepare school librarians to work collaboratively with teachers as well as contribute to advance learning by guiding and encouraging individual inquiry, engaging students to think critically about the world around them, as well develop a knowledge base of current technologies as tools.

If you already possess a master’s degree, you can be certified as a school library media specialist after being accepted into the program and completing Library Media Curriculum courses. Elementary certified teachers must add EDU 50700 Teaching Reading in the Content Areas (3) to meet DESE’s requirements for library media specialist certification.
