Knowledge River: Earn your MLS in a Multicultural Learning Community
Do you have an interest in becoming a librarian? Do you have an interest in serving the information needs of Hispanics and Native Americans? Then the Knowledge River program at the University of Arizona's School of Information Resources and Library Science may be an option to consider. Recently, our director received an informational letter about the program, and we are passing on the information for any potential student. Note that the deadline to apply for the next cohort of students, starting in Fall 2008, is February 1, 2008. Some highlights about the program:
- The program provides "a unique opportunity to prepare for a career as a librarian or information professional with specific focus perspectives of Hispanic and Native American communities."
- You do have to apply for admission. If you are selected, they provide support that includes tuition, fees, and a graduate assistantship. You can find information about the application process at their website.
- The program is based in Tucson, AZ. It is not a virtual or part-time program.
