Department of Educational Technology and Library Science

The Department of Educational Technology and Library Science at the University of Central Missouri offers 100% online graduate degree paths that are the perfect next step if you’re a current teacher whose aim is to get out of the classroom or take your career to the next level. As a professional with any bachelor’s degree, you can work at your own pace to earn your graduate degree while developing both the practical and theoretical knowledge you’ll need to work in a library, cultural institution or information agency or to take on the role of a technology specialist. 

Our fine-tuned virtual teaching approach affords future librarians and technology professionals the best education, with small, focused courses that attract people from all over the world. You can complete your courses at any time, anywhere. Meanwhile, faculty members also offer Zoom meetings to keep you feeling connected to our community.

Career-focused curriculum

Our online learning model incorporates plenty of chances to connect with your peers and UCM faculty and expand your professional network and knowledge. Examples of specialized opportunities in the Department of Educational Technology and Library Science include personalized advising and invitations to join a wide variety of conferences and Zoom speakers. Meanwhile, both graduate degrees in our program satisfy Missouri school library media requirements and are American Association of School Librarian approved, although you can go on to work in other emerging careers.
