Master of Library and Information Science (MLIS)
San Jose State University
GPA: 3.98

In my studies, I focused on both libraries and archives as these areas are where my personal interests lie; I believe this approach offers a broad base of understanding and skills. To satisfy the University’s requirement for a culminating experience, I completed an e-Portfolio, which can be accessed by the link at the top. Below I have listed the courses completed for the MLIS (click on the course name for the description):
