Online WISE Courses

WISE courses are master's level distance education courses that are being offered via the WISE consortium of which SILS is a member. Typically, 
the number of "seats" available in each class is limited (2-5). 
Syllabi are available for some courses, but not for others. If any of 
these courses are of interest to you and you would like to enroll, please speak to Prof. Claudia Gollop (919-962-8362/gollop@ils.unc.edu).

WISE has a later starting date for enrollment and the start date for classes also varies among the WISE LIS schools. You should know that if you wish to enroll in a WISE course, you will probably be be notified a little later than usual as to whether you have actually been admitted. For more information on the WISE consortium please go to this link: http://www.wiseeducation.org/

NOTE: Some WISE course are offered by Victoria University of Wellington and Charles Sturt University. These universities use the point system instead of the credit hour system. These institutions have been assessed to the equivalent of our ALA accredited program by WISE and equate with our 3 credit courses.


Forms to register for the Masters Paper INLS 992, Independent Study INLS 396 (undergraduates only) & 696 (graduate students only) Research in Information & Library Science INLS 988 (PhD Students only), and Doctoral Dissertation 994 are available online.

Guidlines and forms for the Field Experience (INLS 795) are available online. Prior to registering for FE, you should have completed at least 21 semester hours and have permission of your advisor. The Field Experience Agreement, including a description and learning objectives are to be turned into the Field Experience Coordinator , Kathy Wisser no later then the first day of classes of the semester in which you are enrolled in the field experience, otherwise you will be dropped from the class. Students are required to participate in three field experience seminars during the semester in which they are enrolled.

Courses designated with a W in the section number are web-based courses and do not have a regular weekly meeting pattern.
