SJSU school puts emphasis on ‘Information’ with new branding

San José State University’s School of Library and Information Sciences has changed its name to the School of Information. The school, which is part of the College of Applied Sciences and Arts, launched the new name on Aug. 1, complete with a new website address:

“We are excited to introduce a new name for the school that is more inclusive of all our educational programs and reflects the diverse career opportunities our graduates will have in the information professions,” said Dr. Sandra Hirsh, director of the SJSU School of Information, in a blog post on the school’s website.

While the school’s name is changing, the names of graduate degrees offered by the school are not changing. The SJSU School of Information continues to offer a Master’s degree in Library and Information Science ( – MLIS) and a Master’s degree in Archives and Records Administration ( – MARA).
