Promote Student Literacy. Inspire Students to Read.
School librarians create a vibrant culture of literacy by teaching critical skills young people need to evaluate and manage information while using innovative technology to share ideas. With a Master of Science in School Library and Information Science from the University of Houston-Clear Lake, you’ll become one of your school’s most dynamic educators who will not only build on the traditional role of nurturing a love for reading and developing high-quality collections to support the school curriculum, you will also be well equipped to support students and teachers in using innovative technologies to expand and enhance teaching and learning.
