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. 

Key:

1 Limited to BSIS Undergraduates only

2 Limited to juniors, sophmores, and freshmen during pre-registration

3 Limited to first year undergraduates only

* Course has a pre- or co-requisite. See course description

** PhD Students Only
