The Department of Educational Leadership offers the Master of Education in Administration and Supervision with a concentration in Library Science. The concentration was developed to produce enlightened PreK-12 library information specialists that will possess the competencies outlined by the State of Tennessee and defined in Information Power (1998). The themes of collaboration, leadership, and technology are reflected in every aspect of this program. The coursework is comprised of curriculum development and research skills--both of which are essential to the library information specialist role. Graduates of this program will be evaluated by performance-based assessment ensuring that they will be ready to take their place in the teaching corps of the school.

Completion of the concentration in Library Science will meet course requirements for Tennessee endorsement as a library information specialist. Additional state requirements must be met for initial teacher licensure. Requirements for licensure should be checked in the Teacher Licensure Office.
