Online Open House Events

We invite you to attend an online open house to learn more about the graduate degree programs at the San José State University (SJSU) School of Information. The online information sessions provide an overview of our school's online learning community, exclusively online master's degree programs, and interactive online learning environment. Our school's award-winning faculty and staff host the information sessions. It's a great opportunity to meet our faculty and staff and ask any questions you may have about the SJSU iSchool's online educational programs. Join us for an online information session and learn how earning a master's degree from the SJSU iSchool can propel your career!

Open house events are held via web conferencing and last approximately 60 minutes. For instructions on how to use the web conferencing platform Blackboard Collaborate, please see Open House Student Tech Prep Guide.
