Open Classes Course List

Overview

Summer 2019 Course List — Open Classes

The list of summer 2019 courses below includes all electives offered. MLIS core courses are not offered through iSchool Open Classes.

Note: Enrollment is based on space availability and is not guaranteed. Some of the classes below might already be filled.

As you explore these courses, we encourage you to read the previous course syllabus. (Click on the course title to view the syllabus.) Note that in some cases, the syllabus may be from a previous semester, as the summer 2019 syllabus is not yet available. Also, some courses are new, and thus there are no previous syllabi available. When viewing a course syllabus from a previous semester, please note that the instructor for the summer 2019 Open Class may not be the same instructor in the sample syllabus we have linked to from a previous semester. Check the iSchool Schedule of Classes for any mandatory Zoom web conferencing dates, which will be added before Open Classes registration.

The course syllabus includes a brief course description, along with details regarding assignments, technology requirements, grades, course calendar, workload expectations, student learning outcomes, and textbooks. If any live synchronous class sessions are required, they will be noted on the syllabus.

Most courses are for three units and cover the full 10-week session. However, there are several 1-unit and 2-unit courses available, reducing the cost to enroll, as well as the time needed to complete the course.

Students who enroll in Open Classes do not need to complete any MLIS prerequisites prior to enrolling. If you are interested in a specific course, we invite you to complete a sign-up form, which will be available April 24, 8 a.m. Pacific, and then we will get in touch with you to confirm whether space is available.
