This article aims at reviewing the curricula related to the discipline of Library and Information Sciences, M. A. level, exercised since 1967 In Iran. Changes and modifications in these programs will be focused on. The main points in the program used since 1978 together with ways of implementing them in any of the 7 subdisciplines of this major will also be discussed. Later, the reasons behind using or ignoring certain courses will also be explained. It will be mentioned that basic courses, in this discipline, must not be put aside as Information Technology is gaining an everincreasing importance; because, such a phenomenon will question the existance of faculties running such courses, at M. A. level, alltogether.
