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, and to explore topics of interest in more depth.
