Simmons College GSLIS Accepting Applications for 2014 Travel Courses in Seoul & Paris
Boston, MA (November 12, 2013) – The Simmons College Graduate School of Library and Information Science is pleased to invite LIS students from ALA-accredited master’s programs to apply for enrollment in our Summer 2014 travel courses in Seoul, South Korea and Paris, France. Both programs include two weeks of on-site instruction and three weeks of online instruction prior to departure, with the opportunity to earn 3 or 6 credit hours depending on choice of courses.
Our Seoul program, a partnership with Yonsei University’s Department of Library and Information Science, will include the following course offerings in Seoul from July 23 to August 11, 2014: Principles of Management (LIS404) taught by Professor Mary Wilkins Jordan and Information Ethics (LIS475) taught by Professor Lisa Hussey. Students will share accommodations in Yonsei’s Muak Dormitory, located conveniently on campus in the Sinchon neighborhood with easy access to the greater Seoul area. Site visits will include trips to the Korean National Library, Yonsei University Samsung Library, and the Korean Film Archive.
Our Paris program, a partnership with St. John’s University Division of Library and Information Science, will include the following course offerings in Paris from July 31 to August 18, 2014: Visual Communications (LIS470) taught by Professor Gerald Benoit and Organization and Management of Corporate Libraries (LIS414) taught by Dean Emeritus and Professor Jim Matarazzo. Students will share accommodations at the St. John’s University Paris campus in the centrally located St. Germain district. Site visits include trips to the Louvre, Musée d’Orsay, KPMG Audit Library, Bain & Company, and BNP Paribas Economic and Financial Information Centre.
For both programs, please verify with your home institution that courses taken at Simmons College GSLIS will count for transfer credit back to your current program before selecting a course. Students may elect to take one or both of the courses offered at each destination, though we recommend taking only one due to the quick pace and immersive nature of the program.
For more information and instructions to apply, please visit our website. Please note, students are asked to email the GSLIS Office of Admissions by February 1, 2014 to be considered. Contact Bethany Fair at email@example.com for questions.
