Spring 2019 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. Please use the UIS dynamic schedule to find the options.

If the spring semester will be your final semester, you should plan to enroll in LIS 451 Senior Seminar.  Please email Andy Egizi for registration approval.

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.  At this point, we will not be offering LIS 301 in the spring semester so this should be a Fall 2019 goal for new majors.
