School of Communication and Information
United States of America
Communication and information are at the forefront of every industry and interaction today. The School of Communication and Information (SC&I) at Rutgers University is committed to equipping students with the tools required to succeed in today’s global communication, information, and media environments. SC&I’s programs prepare students interested in organizational and health communication, social and new media, library and information science, and information technology for a top career in today’s digital workplace.
SC&I seeks to understand communication, information, media processes, and technologies as they affect individuals, societies, organizations, and the relationships among them.
SC&I, located on the Rutgers University flagship New Brunswick campus, was created in 1982 with the merger of the Graduate School of Library and Information Studies, the School of Communication Studies, and the Department of Urban Journalism. The journalism and library science programs each had roots in programs established in the 1920s at Rutgers, and the communication program was established during the 1970s.
