Master’s Practicum Showcase: Student Learning in Action

As a finale to the popular master’s Practicum program, the School hosts an open-house showcase which celebrates the significant accomplishments of Practicum students.

The three-credit Practicum gives Master of Library and Information Studies students the opportunity to participate in field practice, applying their theoretical knowledge base and learning while practicing professional skills. Practicums take place under the guidance of a supervisor, many of whom are School alumni.

This student showcase provides a unique opportunity for students, supervisors, and other attendees to network and learn more about projects in a variety of information settings. Practicum site supervisors, students, SIS alumni, and others interested in the program are welcome to attend the presentations.
