Our MLIS program is fully accredited by the American Library Association.
The first Library Science course was taught at San José State University in 1928, and SJSU SLIS first started offering a graduate degree in Library Science in 1954. The program has been continuously accredited by the American Library Association (ALA) since 1969.
We invite you to find out more about our School’s ALA accreditation by reading reports from our most recent re-accreditation process.
In 2008, the School introduced a second graduate degree, the Master of Archives and Records Administration (MARA), and in 2012, the School started offering its Post-Master’s Certificate program in Library and Information Science.
We invite you to read more about our School's history, from its early beginnings at a public university located in the heart of Silicon Valley, to its transition to a fully-online delivery model in 2009.
