I am very lucky to sit on the International Advisory Council for the San Jose State University School of Library and Information Science. It’s been a great experience. Anyway, a few of their folks including the director and a professor are visiting a few locations in Ontario to host some open houses about their amazingly large and innovative online program. They have loads of Canadian students in both the online MLIS and PhD gateway program. If you’re interested in learning more, try to attend one of these open houses in Toronto, Hamilton, Newmarket and Ottawa. If you can’t make it, check out their website for information and other events and conferences they are atending.
You’re Invited: SJSU SLIS Information Sessions in the Greater Toronto Area and Ottawa, Ontario
Our bags are packed, and we are excited for our trip to Ontario. The School of Library and Information Science at San Jose State University is hosting open house events in early September in Toronto, Hamilton, Newmarket and Ottawa. Everyone is invited to attend. Please feel free to forward this invitation.
Our school is only online, but for a few days in September, we’re coming to your home town to meet with you face-to-face at our open house events in Ontario.
If you’ve been thinking about earning your master’s degree, or perhaps refreshing your skills by completing a post-master’s certificate, we encourage you to stop by one of our information sessions, and learn how the School of Library and Information Science at San Jose State University can help you achieve your educational goals.
It’s the perfect opportunity to meet with our school’s director, Dr. Sandra Hirsh, and talk to her about your career aspirations. She can help you decide which one of our fully online programs is best suited for you. Our school offers a master’s degree in library and information science, a master’s degree in archives and records administration, a post-master’s certificate, and a gateway doctoral program. All our school’s educational programs are only online.
In addition, you’ll chat with SJSU SLIS alumni, and hear how our school prepared them for successful careers in the information profession. Hundreds of your fellow Canadians are alumni of our school, and we’re proud of their accomplishments.
