Blaze a Trail! Take Leadership in Defining Data Curation Policies and Services by Joining the Post Master's in Data Curation

August 7, 2013

Those who work with digital materials and understand the associated policies and technologies of data curation are in demand and assuming leadership positions in libraries, archives and corporations. The need for talented leaders in data curation is well recognized by business, government institutions and academia.

To answer the need of educating leaders in this area, top-ranked School of Information and Library Science at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill has created a Post Master’s program in Data Curation.

Designed for those who have been in the field for a few years and who are finding themselves more and more responsible for digital collections and large-scale data management, the program offers students leadership skills they can use for real world problems in their workplaces.

Taught by world class faculty who are pioneers in data curation, the program is the most extensive and intensive available, with coursework that will prepare students for nearly any challenge that lies ahead.

Following two weeks of on-campus classes that offer an opportunity to meet faculty and colleagues and jumpstart course work, students will enjoy a flexible online course of study designed to fit into busy schedules. Participants will engage in work-related projects that will serve their institutions/corporations and embed their learning in real work production services. Imagine an interactive, online education without the necessity of fighting traffic, paying for parking or dressing in business attire - all on your own time, at your own pace in the comfort of your own home.

Lead the way. Apply today for the Post Master’s in Data Curation.
