The Library Science program at Kutztown University of Pennsylvania prepares skilled professional library information specialists who are cognizant of their importance in a diverse, rapidly changing global society.
The program began in 1921 as an undergraduate degree (B.S.Ed.). The master's program began in 1965 as an M.Ed. Since 1972, the basic professional curriculum has led to the Master of Library Science degree (MLS). Currently, Kutztown offers a bachelor's degree in library science with PA certification (K-12), a bachelor's degree in library science, and a master's degree (MLS) in library science with or without certification.
Students completing either of these programs are prepared as professional librarians to evaluate, select, collect, organize, store, retrieve and disseminate information.
The various program options have been designed to include the traditional roles of librarianship as well as the standard and emerging technologies. Additionally, the program balances theoretical foundation with practical implementation.
Teacher Education programs at Kutztown University are fully accredited by the State of Pennsylvania through the Pennsylvania Department of Education. This accreditation involves a regular review and alignment with state teacher education program standards and compliance with all aspects of appropriate Pennsylvania State law and code.
Teacher Education programs at Kutztown University are nationally accredited by the Nation Council for Accreditation of Teacher Education. NCATE establishes high and rigorous standards for preparation programs, holds accredited institutions accountable for meeting these standards, and requires institutions to demonstrate teacher candidates know their subject matter and how to teach it effectively to all students.
