Get to know us

Founded in 1857, San Jose State University is the oldest public institution of higher education on the West Coast. San Jose State offers over 140 undergraduate’s degree programs and 90 master’s degree programs in a variety of academic disciplines. Choose to study here and develop the skills you need for a successful career in your field.

San José State University is Silicon Valley’s number one source of graduates in education, engineering, computer science and business. Companies in Silicon Valley employ more graduates from SJSU than from any other university in the U.S.

Located on 154 acres in downtown San José, the university offers the excitement of studying at a large, metropolitan campus where many cultures meet. Yet students find personal attention from faculty members in the smaller settings of the university’s eight colleges. San José is a newly revitalized city which hosts major sports, the arts, museums and restaurants serving a wide variety of cuisines. The Santa Cruz coastline is less than an hour away; San Francisco is one hour to the north.
