Instructional Technology Licensure-Only
Candidates who already have an advanced degree in education or who already have a MLIS/MLS degree may earn 077 licensure by taking the 18 semester hours of specialized course requirements listed above and a practicum.
Successful completion of this program culminates in a license, not a degree.

- Receive a satisfactory evaluation on the practicum.
- Acquire professional liability insurance for all courses with field-based component (LIS 691, 692, & 693).

The U.S. Department of Education requires that all higher education institutions advise students as to whether their curriculum provides them with the eligibility to apply for a professional license and/or certification in the state for which they plan to practice.
As such, please review UNC Greensboro’s status by state for the Library and Information Science MLIS/MEd- 077 Instructional Technology program. You should note whether the program either “meets”, “does not meet”, or if there “has not been a determination” of the program’s status in the state for which you plan to practice. You should contact the LIS School Library Program Coordinator at firstname.lastname@example.org with any questions regarding this data.
