Want to take a School of Information course before beginning your master’s program? You can do it through the school’s Open Classes program.
Open Classes are a great way to get a head start on your master’s program and explore what the iSchool is all about. Alumni and other professionals who already hold a master’s degree also take Open Classes to strengthen their current professional skills.
Most of the school’s electives are available to you through Open Classes, and if there is space available in the course, you can sign up. (As a future master’s student at our school, you can rest assured that we give our MLIS and MARA students the opportunity to enroll in the classes first, before offering open seats to others.)
If you are admitted for the fall 2015 semester and want to get a head start on your MLIS or MARA coursework through Open Classes, you can sign up for the spring or summer sessions (or both) for up to 3 units each semester.
