Just to confirm, when it states on the Course Load page, “MLIS students can expect to spend at least three hours outside of “class” per every course hour” — the number of course hours is equivalent to the course’s number of units? Thank you!

01:02:38
Does the School of Information offer assistantships to MLIS students? Thank you!
Natalie Moller
01:02:47
Is the summer term shorter than fall and spring? If so, are summer courses more rigorous to cover the same content in a shorter period of time, or are they typically less units instead?

01:02:59
Does the program ever fill up before the May 1st application deadline?
Bethany Park

Laura aka Daria

Diana Vu
01:07:17
If you want to specialize in a particular type of librarianship (for instance in Healthcare or in Music) will you be able to take these courses at the school along with the MLIS degree? Or should the student anticipate taking the coursees as a part of a different degree?

01:08:41
Thank you!
Mae
01:09:01
After submitting my CalStateApply application I received an email that stated that in 5-7 business days, my campus will email me to confirm receipt of application. Admissions instructed me that in the next few business days you will get login information that you login to with instructions about sending transcripts. Does it matter/should we wait to receive this login? Or can I just start sending transcripts now according to the info on the school website?
Mae
01:09:06
(sorry that’s incredibly long)
Andrea
01:10:21

Grace Keller
01:11:46
