The School Librarianship Professional Certificate is offered to qualified candidates
who have a master's degree from an accredited institution and who hold a valid Tennessee
Teaching License. Qualifying students may take 24 credit hours of approved classes
to meet the current school licensure requirements for Tennessee endorsement School
Library Specialist #473.
Because courses are arranged sequentially and may only be offered once each year, students must complete all classes successfully before advancing to the next term. At the completion of the coursework, students must follow the current state testing requirement for Praxis Test #5311 "School Library Specialist" and apply for add-on status to their current teaching license by contacting Angela Murray through the Clemmer College.
