SJSU’s School of Information is now making it even easier to customize your coursework and benefit from a highly flexible approach to earning your master’s degree. Starting in spring 2015, the school is offering more 1-unit courses.
The briefer 1-unit courses, which last about a month, allow students to take a class in an area they might not otherwise delve into, because 1-unit courses involve a shorter time commitment than a 3-unit course covering the full semester.

I know you’re just getting your feet wet in one of our school’s graduate programs, but I wanted to put in a plug for internships now because I just finished my first one and had such a great experience.
This past semester, I interned at a K-8 middle school library in San Francisco. In the process, I co-designed a new, Dewey-free classification system. I also developed lesson plans and taught a media literacy class.
The internship gave me some pretty impressive experience in catalog development/design and information literacy instruction. More importantly, the internship confirmed my goal of working in a school library. I’m so glad I did it! So are many other SLIS students who have completed internships. You can read about some of them in our Community Profiles.
