General Education Program

Per Amendment C to University Policy S14-5, the General Education Program was revised to create a 3-unit GE Area F Ethnic Studies  and reduce the GE Area D Social Sciences  unit requirement from 9 units to 6 units to bring SJSU in alignment with California Education Code 89032. Amendment D to University Policy S14-5 replaced the Area D language and added the Area F language in the 2014 GE Guidelines.

Spartan Accelerated Graduate Education (SAGE) Scholars Programs (10)

Spartan Accelerated Graduate Education (SAGE) Scholars programs are combined bachelor’s and master’s programs at SJSU (per University Policy F19-1).
