Practicum Experience Opportunities

UNCG Library and Information Studies

Department of Library and Information Studies Practicum Experience

For the general MLIS degree, a practicum is usually an unpaid experience in an information organization done for credit through LIS 691. All practicum experiences must be 120 hours in duration to earn 3 credits. Only one practicum can be completed for credit. LIS 691 requires payment of tuition. Practicum experiences must be arranged through and approved by the supervising faculty member for that semester.

Please check out our practicum partners for some of the available opportunities or ask your advisor about other institutions in your area.
