The degree of

Master of Library and Information Science

I wanted to earn a masters degree because:

I wanted to fulfill my dream to become an academic librarian!

While earning my degree, my greatest supporters were:

My husband, my kids and my dean at the Leatherby Libraries at Chapman University.

While in the program, I met classmates from:

All over the country!

What I liked best about online learning was:

It was very convenient and flexible!

What I enjoyed most about my experience at the SJSU School of Information was:

The user-friendly software, the flexibility of the professors and the team approach!

I plan to use my degree to:

Become an Academic dean and to help librarians and libraries in the middle east to flourish!

Now that I have completed the program, I'm most looking forward to:

Free time with my kids and becoming a librarian!
