Summer 2020 Online Courses

The courses listed on this page are hyperlinked to the actual UIS schedule.  You can follow this link to see useful information like the number of available spaces, course descriptions, and whether or not a waitlist exists.

Realize that this list includes only the courses that are most likely options for online LIS majors. It does not include courses that some students may wish to consider: graduate level courses, Teacher Preparation, or courses in BIO, BUS, MGT, MAT, and CSC that require prerequisites that most LIS majors have not completed. If you wish to review all UIS courses, please use the UIS dynamic schedule to find the options.

 

IMPORTANT:

  • All Psychology courses require approval.  The online approval request form will be available on the PSY program website on (approximately) April 1.
  • Typically, LIS majors take LIS 301 Self-directed Learning in their first semester.  Since the course is only offered in fall semesters, if you are a first-time LIS major please include LIS 301 on your fall schedule
