WISE COURSES:

            

Web-based Information Science Education (WISE) is a unique and groundbreaking opportunity for students to take online elective Library and Information Science accredited courses from other universities. Students have the opportunity to access distance education courses through WISE member schools who have met the quality bar in online education. As such, students may access courses from a wider base of faculty and research than may be normally available within their home school. WISE students have the ability to select from a wide array of online courses, regardless of their location, and take courses with faculty who are highly regarded in their area of expertise. WISE students pay tuition at their home school at their regular credit hour rate.
