The School of Library and Information Management (SLIM) at Emporia State University, is happy to announce a new cohort location. Beginning in the Fall of 2017, SLIM will be offering classes in Sioux Falls, South Dakota.

The ALA-accredited MLS is a 36-credit hour graduate degree program that prepares students for professional work in public, academic, school, and special libraries as well as in corporate, private, and government information services.

Our seven core courses are offered in a blended format, some online, but with face-to-face time with your professors. The face-to-face time is accomplished during our weekend intensives, where classes are held on Friday nights from 6-9  and then on Saturdays from 9-5. (Each core course requires 2 face-to-face weekends per semester.) The bulk of the electives are in an online format.

The face-to-face classes will be held at either Augustana University or Siouxland Libraries.

If you wish to be a part of this exciting opportunity, please apply by July 1, 2017.
