The Certificate in Advanced Library and Information Science (CALIS) is offered to students who complete a coherent program of specialized study and research beyond the Master of Library and Information Science (MLISc). Students work with an academic advisor to build a program of study that matches the student’s professional interests. Students can use the post-master’s certificate as continuing education, to explore a new area, or as preparation to change careers within librarianship, archival studies or other information professions. At the end of the CALIS program, students write and present a capstone paper.
No diploma is awarded, however a certificate of achievement is provided after successful completion of courses and the research project. The Certificate provides an opportunity for professional development concentrated on aspects of information technology.
