A Commercial for UGA’s SLM Program
February is the time of year when we begin admitting prospective media specialists to our fall cohort M.Ed and Ed.S. programs leading to SLM certification.
Over the years, we’ve found that practicing media specialists are the best marketing tool to encourage people to enter the profession. Many people never think about becoming a school librarian until someone mentions to them, “I think you would make a great media specialist. Have you ever thought about that?”
Although our published deadline is February 1st, in reality we keep admitting qualified students until we have a healthy-sized cohort. Our reviewing begins next week; most years, we continue into April before we’re full.
So it’s not too late. If you know someone, pass this info along. Interested candidates should explore the admission requirements and procedures at our program web site, and follow up with questions to firstname.lastname@example.org.
