Master of Education in Library Media, K-12 Certification
Plymouth State University's Master of Education in Library Media will prepare you for a successful career in the school library setting. Plymouth State University offers a comprehensive program, the only of its kind in the state, for those new to the school library setting or for seasoned professionals wishing to renew New Hampshire state certification.
In the combined curriculum of academic and supervised practical experiences, you'll study administration, use of information, collection development, teaching and learning, and literature. Your program of study will consist of three core courses required of every PSU Master of Education student; five courses focusing directly on library/media studies; six credits of electives selected by you and your advisor; and, finally, a capstone component at the culmination of your studies in which you'll put theory into practice in a practicum experience.
This program is accredited by the New England Association of Schools and Colleges (NEASC) as well as the National Council for Accreditation of Teacher Education (NCATE).
