The study planner and portfolio serves as a tool for planning the student’s program of study and, upon completion of the program, demonstrates the meeting of program learning objectives as well as the student’s educational and professional goals.
The portfolio should focus on your knowledge of the information science (IS) field and on professional competencies developed in both required and elective courses.
You can use your program portfolio as a springboard for producing a professional portfolio, a tool that is common in the job application process. A portfolio with a satisfactory grade is a graduation requirement for all students entering the program (as of summer/fall 2012).
If you are a student pursing the MS in school librarianship, please note that different portfolio requirements (linked below) need to be met.
