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 with School Librarian and Master Technology certifications from University of Houston-Clear Lake, you’ll become one of your school’s most dynamic educators building on the traditional role of nurturing a love for reading, while developing high-quality collections to support the school curriculum and meet student-reading preferences.

Become a Leader in the Information Age

The School Library and Information Science Program in UHCL’s College of Education focuses on school librarianship. The program is designed for those with a passion for leading elementary, middle, or high school teachers in the integration of technology; collaborating with teachers to develop lessons in all curricular areas; helping students become information-literate, teaching students about the ethical uses of resources; and implementing and promoting school-wide literacy programs, all of which impact student learning. Students completing this degree are eligible for certification as school librarians and master technology teachers.
