San Jose State University (often abbreviated San Jose State or SJSU) is a public university located in San Jose, California, United States. It is the founding campus of the California State University (CSU) system, and holds the distinction of being the oldest public institution of higher education on the West Coast of the United States.
Located in downtown San Jose, the SJSU main campus is situated on 154 acres (62 ha), or roughly 19 square blocks. SJSU enrolls approximately 31,000 students in over 130 different bachelor's and master's degree programs.
SJSU's student population is one of the most ethnically diverse in the nation, with large Asian and Latino enrollments, as well as the highest foreign student enrollment of all master's institutions in the United States.
Popular undergraduate majors at SJSU include business, engineering, visual and performing arts, nursing, psychology, justice studies, biology, kinesiology, journalism and computer science. Popular fields of study among graduate students include engineering, library and information science, education and social work.
San Jose State University claims to provide Silicon Valley firms with more engineering, computer science and business graduates than any other college or university, and philanthropic support of SJSU is among the highest in the CSU system.
The school eventually moved to San Jose in 1871 and was given Washington Square Park at Fourth and San Carlos Streets, where the campus remains to this day.
In 1881, the first branch campus of the California State Normal School was announced, which later became the University of California, Los Angeles (UCLA). A large bell was forged that year to commemorate the original California State Normal School location in San Jose. The bell was inscribed with the words "California State Normal School, A.D. 1881," and would sound on special occasions until 1946 when the college obtained new chimes. The original bell appears on the SJSU campus to this day, and is still associated with various student traditions and rituals.
In 1921, the school's name changed to the State Teachers College at San Jose. In 1935, the State Teachers Colleges became the California State Colleges, and the school's name was changed again, this time to San Jose State College. In 1972, upon meeting criteria established by the Board of Trustees and the Coordinating Council for Higher Education, SJSC was granted university status, and the name was changed to California State University, San Jose.
Finally, in 1974, the California legislature voted to change the school's name to San Jose State University.
The SJSU main campus comprises approximately 55 buildings situated on a rectangular,154-acre (62.3 ha) area in downtown San Jose. The campus is bordered by San Fernando Street to the north, San Salvador Street to the south, South 4th Street to the west, and South 10th Street to the east. The South Campus, which is home to many of the school's athletics facilities, is located approximately 1.5 mi (2.4 km) south of the main campus on South 7th Street.
California State Normal School did not receive a permanent home until it moved from San Francisco to San Jose in 1871. The original California State Normal School campus in San Jose consisted of several rectangular, wooden buildings with a central grass quadrangle. The wooden buildings were destroyed by fire in 1880 and were replaced by interconnected stone and masonry structures of roughly the same configuration in 1881. These buildings were declared unsafe following the 1906 San Francisco earthquake and were being torn down when an aftershock of the magnitude that was predicted to destroy the buildings occurred and no damage was observed. Accordingly, demolition was stopped, and the portions of the buildings still standing were made into four halls: Tower Hall, Morris Dailey Auditorium, Washington Square Hall, and Dwight Bentel Hall. These four structures remain standing to this day, and are the oldest buildings on campus.
Beginning in the fall of 1994, the on-campus segments of San Carlos Street, Seventh Street and Ninth Street were closed to automobile traffic and converted to pedestrian walkways and green belts within the campus. San Carlos Street was renamed Paseo San Carlos, Seventh Street became El Paseo de César Chávez, and Ninth Street is now called the Ninth Street Plaza. The project was completed in 1996.
Completed in 1999, the Business Classroom Project was a US$16 million renovation of the James F. Boccardo Business Education Center.
Completed in 1999, the US$1.5 million Heritage Gateway project was unveiled. The privately-funded project featured construction of eight oversized gateways around the main campus perimeter.
In the Fall of 2000, the SJSU Police Department, which is part of the larger California State University Police Department, opened a new on-campus, multi-level facility on 7th Street.
The new US$177 million Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. Library, which opened its doors on August 1, 2003, won the Library Journal's prestigious 2004 Library of the Year award, the publication’s highest honor. The King Library represents the first collaboration of its kind between a university and a major U.S. city. The library is eight stories high, has 475,000 square feet (44,100 m2) of floor space, and houses approximately 1.6 million volumes. San Jose's first public library occupied the same site from 1901 to 1936, and SJSU's Wahlquist Library occupied the site from 1961 to 2000, at which point it was torn down to begin construction of the King Library.
In 2002, three of SJSU's six red brick residence halls were demolished and replaced with the new Campus Village residence complex. The US$200 million housing facility comprises three buildings ranging from seven to 15 stories tall. The project increased student capacity for on-campus housing to roughly 3,500, and provides housing options for first-year students, upper-class students, graduate students and faculty, staff and guests of the university. Campus Village officially opened in 2005.
In 2006, a US$2 million renovation of Tower Hall was completed. Tower Hall is the oldest and most recognizable building on campus.
In 2007, the School of Library and Information Science opened a virtual campus in Second Life, complete with faculty offices, classrooms, student lounge and library e-resources. The project was supported by grants from a number of sources including the Soros Foundation.
SJSU is home to the 10,000-square-foot (930 m2), three-story Nuclear Science Facility. It is the only nuclear science facility of its kind in the California State University system.
Located on the main campus, the SJSU Aquatic Center features an outdoor Olympic-size swimming pool. The pool is open year-round and is believed to be among the largest outdoor pools in California.
Located on the main campus, The Event Center Arena seats approximately 5,000 people for athletic events and over 6,000 for concerts, and features an attached recreation center that includes a basketball practice gym, racquetball courts, a weight room and a climbing wall.
The SJSU Student Union is a four-story, stand alone facility that features a food court, the Spartan Bookstore, a multi-level study area, ballrooms, a bowling alley, music room, and a large game room. In June 2010, a US$91 million renovation and expansion project of the SJSU Student Union commenced. The project is expected to take about 30 months to complete, with the new facility opening its doors sometime in 2013.
In May 2011, construction of a new student health and counseling facility commenced. The project will cost an estimated US$33 million, and is scheduled to be completed in May 2013.
Many of SJSU's athletics facilities, including Spartan Stadium and Blethen Field (baseball), along with the athletics department administrative offices and multiple training and practice facilities, are located on the 62-acre (25.1 ha) South Campus approximately 1.5 mi (2.4 km) south of the main campus near 7th Street. The south campus also is home to student overflow parking. Shuttle buses run between the main campus and south campus every 10 to 15 minutes Monday through Friday.
As a member institution of the California State University System, San Jose State falls under the jurisdiction of the California State University Board of Trustees and the Chancellor of the California State University.
The chief executive of San Jose State University is the university president. The current president is Dr. Mohammad Qayoumi. Qayoumi was named president of SJSU March 23, 2011. Qayoumi previously served as president of California State University, East Bay.
San Jose State offers 69 bachelors degrees with 81 concentrations, and 65 masters degrees with 29 concentrations.
The University is home to eight colleges and seven schools (listed below):
SJSU also is home to a burgeoning eCampus community called International and Extended Studies (IES), which coordinates continuing education and professional development programs.
San Jose State enrolls approximately 31,000 students in over 130 different bachelor's and master's degree programs. There are approximately 24,000 undergraduate students enrolled at SJSU, and 6,500 graduate students. In accordance with the California Master Plan for Higher Education, the university generally does not offer doctoral degrees, however, it does offer a joint Ph.D. program in library science through Queensland University of Technology and a joint Ph.D. program in engineering through Mississippi State University. SJSU's School of Nursing will begin offering a Doctor of Nursing Practice (DNP) degree program in 2012, and SJSU's College of Education recently launched an Ed.D. program in educational leadership in 2011-12. The DNP program will be offered jointly in collaboration with California State University, Fresno. The Ed.D. program represents SJSU's first independent doctoral degree offering.
As of fall 2009, the fields of study in highest demand at SJSU were (in descending order of popularity): business, engineering, visual and performing arts, nursing, education, psychology, justice studies, library and information science, biology, kinesiology, journalism, and computer science. Programs somewhat unique to SJSU include aviation science, transportation management, meteorology, software engineering, and sustainable and green manufacturing technology.
Business-related programs account for the single most popular field of study at SJSU. As of fall 2009, roughly 23% of all undergraduates at SJSU were business majors. The university's College of Business, with almost 6,000 undergraduate and graduate students, is the second largest college at SJSU and among the largest business schools in the country. It is accredited by the AACSB International at both the graduate and undergraduate levels, a distinction held by less than 5% of business programs worldwide.
Engineering-related programs make up the second most popular field of study at SJSU. As of fall 2009, the university's seven engineering disciplines accounted for roughly 12% of all undergraduate majors. The university's Charles W. Davidson College of Engineering, with over 4,700 undergraduate and graduate students and approximately 350 faculty and staff members, is the third largest college on campus behind the College of Applied Sciences and Arts and the College of Business.
As of fall 2009, visual and performing arts programs accounted for roughly 8% of all undergraduate majors at SJSU, and amounted to the third most popular field of study at SJSU behind business and engineering. The university's School of Art and Design enrolls over 1,900 students and employs nearly 100 faculty and staff members. SJSU's School of Music and Dance comprises approximately 300 students and 60 faculty and staff members.
As of fall 2009, pre-nursing and nursing students comprised roughly 6% of undergraduate enrollment, followed by psychology at 5%, justice studies at 4%, biology, kinesiology, and journalism all weighing in at 3%, and computer science rounding out SJSU's top-ten most popular undergraduate fields of study at 2%.
As of fall 2009, engineering-related programs accounted for approximately 30% of graduate student enrollment, followed by library and information science at approximately 15%, education at 12%, social work at 5%, and visual and performing arts at 4%.
Admission to SJSU is based on a combination of the applicant's high school cumulative grade point average (GPA) and standardized test scores. These factors are used to determine the applicant's California State University (CSU) eligibility index. More specifically, the eligibility index is a weighted combination of high school grade point average during the final three years of high school and a score on either the SAT or ACT. As of 2008, the average SAT score for incoming freshmen was 1,004, and the average high school GPA for incoming freshmen was 3.21.
SJSU currently requires a minimum eligibility index of 2900-3200 using the SAT or 694-760 using the ACT depending on the selected major (3502 and 842 respectively for non-residents of California), which is slightly above the CSU minimum of 2900 and 694 respectively.
The CSU eligibility index is calculated by using either the SAT or ACT as follows:
The university recently formed a cross-enrollment agreement with National Hispanic University. Students enrolled at one institution are able to enroll in up to 6 credits per semester at the other institution. Additionally, students may transfer between institutions with up to 60 credits.
San Jose State University has participated in athletics since it first fielded a baseball team in 1890. SJSU sports teams are known as the Spartans, and compete in the Western Athletic Conference (WAC) in NCAA Division I.
