Regular Session MLIS Course Rotations

Post

The SJSU School of Information will try to follow the proposed course rotations outlined below. However, actual schedules are subject to change and dependent on enrollments and budget. Classes may be offered in variable units (one unit, or two units or three units).

IMPORTANT: After 19 units students may switch to Special Session on a semester by semester basis. We will also review requests to switch earlier than 19 units if a strong justification is made.
