Emporia State University to Have Cohort MLS Program in Conway, AR

12 Dec 2019 10:16 AM | Ronald Russ (Administrator)

For immediate release:

December 11, 2019

School of Library and Information Management (SLIM), Emporia State University (ESU) is pleased to announce the new cohort in Conway, Arkansas, starting in fall 2020. This is the new addition to SLIM’s current 8 locations of hybrid instruction. The last additions were Las Vegas, Nevada and Boise, Idaho, starting in fall 2019.

Many MLS programs are strictly online, meaning students participate in discussions, submit assignments and communicate with professors and other students online only.  What makes SLIM unique is our blended classroom approach.  This hybrid program allows students the flexibility of the online component with an interactive, face-to-face, classroom experience.

While all courses are facilitated online for the full semester, our six core courses each have two Friday evening and all-day Saturday class weekends during the semester. Faculty teach these classes in person, allowing direct interaction between fellow students, instructors, and the regional director.

SLIM has a long history of commitment in the profession of librarianship since 1902, and we believe we offer a great opportunity for future professional librarians in Arkansas and its surrounding areas. The Arkansas cohort’s in-person classes will be held at Hendrix College. 

If you have any questions or would like to know more about the new cohort in Conway, Arkansas, contact our regional director, Elizabeth Hoffman, at ehoffma1@emporia.edu  or 620-412-6453. You may also visit our website at https://www.emporia.edu/slim/ .
