Prospective MARA Students

The exclusively online Master of Archives and Records Administration (MARA) program at the San José State University (SJSU) School of Information (iSchool) makes it possible for students to live anywhere while they earn a graduate degree in the rapidly expanding fields of information governance and corporate archives.

Advanced Technology Skills

MARA students learn to use sophisticated technologies to organize, preserve, and provide access to a growing volume of digital and analog assets. Graduates of the SJSU School of Information's MARA online degree program will be among the few information professionals specifically trained to manage the irreplaceable, yet highly vulnerable digital materials now produced by corporate, government, and nonprofit institutions.
