Library Media: University Courses and Distance Learning Information
Continuing Education and Out-of-state degree Library Program Opportunities
This list of educational opportunities does not include all possibilities, and not all programs are ideal for all needs. These programs should be considered for additional training or continuing education only, as they provide some, but not necessarily all course requirements for endorsement in school library media. A degree from an approved program, with institutional recommendation is still required for endorsement in Colorado. Inquire about the program first to determine if it meets the state requirements for library media endorsement.
