    Hello- I am interested in obtaining a master’s degree in library studies. (I would like to become a Librarian.)

    Currently, I have a Bachelor’s degree in Science/Elementary Ed., and am hoping you would be able to guide me towards my next steps. Please know I am interested in an accelerated program.

    Looking forward to any assistance, information, that you can provide.

    Thanks!

    P.S. I did work as a school librarian during two long-term substitute assignments in Wichita, approx. 15 years ago, and enjoyed it very much!
