The Department of Library Science and Instructional Technology bring fresh innovations to undergraduate and graduate programs. Dual concentration tracks are currently being planned for those interested in completing a master's program with teaching certification and Instructional Technology focus.
The Instructional Technology program offers students three tracks of graduate level courses. These tracks are designed primarily for educators looking to gain graduate credits in Instructional Technology, or move into an IT position.
The Library Science program prepares skilled professional library information specialists who are cognizant of their importance in a diverse, rapidly changing global society.
Students completing either of these programs are prepared as professional librarians to evaluate, select, collect, organize, store, retrieve and disseminate information. The primary emphasis of the program is upon school librarianship.
The various program tracks 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.
Kutztown is accredited by the Middle States Association of Colleges and Secondary Schools and has program approval by the Pennsylvania Department of Education. Both the undergraduate and graduate Library Science programs are accredited by the National Council for the Accreditation of Teacher Education (NCATE).
