Located in the heart of Silicon Valley, the world’s high-tech capital, San José State University is an exceptional place to pursue undergraduate or graduate study. From its beautiful, tree-lined campus in downtown San José, the university sends more business, engineering, education and computer science graduates into Silicon Valley than any other school. Serving a student body of more than 34,000, San José State offers degrees in more than 134 programs and concentrations. Students benefit from the excitement of studying at a large, urban university—a true crossroads of cultures—in the nation’s 10th largest city. Yet they enjoy the personal attention of faculty within the smaller setting of the university’s seven colleges. Founded in 1857, SJSU is the oldest public institution of higher education on the West Coast. Today the university is recognized for its award-winning faculty, high-achieving students, cutting-edge programs and innovative collaborations with the community and the corporate world.
