Graduate students typically have two orientation events: a broad orientation event for all UAlberta students, and a departmental or school-level orientation for your program.

At SLIS we have typically held two orientation events each year. A virtual summer orientation for students in the online MLIS, and an in-person event in late August for students studying on-campus.

Orientation 2020

Due to the unique challenges resulting from measures taken to combat the spread of COVID-19, including the shift to remote course delivery for the majority of Fall term students, Orientation 2020 will take on a new virtual format, which may include a single orientation event for al SLIS students.

This page will be updated as events are scheduled. Students beginning their program in Fall 2020 will also be emailed when more orientation information is available.
