The SJSU School of Information offers generous scholarships to both new students and continuing students enrolled in its Master of Library and Information Science, Master of Archives and Records Administration, or MS in Informatics program. Eligible students may apply for 40 different scholarships with funds totaling more than $60,000. Additional scholarships are also available from San José State University and other agencies.
Graduate students admitted for the MLIS or MARA degree programs at the San José State University (SJSU) School of Information are eligible each semester for a variety of paid student assistantships that involve working with faculty and staff on different projects. Some examples of projects and tasks that student assistants have worked on include:
Our school’s online learning environment includes a wide array of emerging technology, enabling SJSU iSchool students and faculty to interact and collaborate, regardless of their geographic location. We invite you to browse this section of our website, which provides information regarding the technology we currently use in our programs.
SJSU Counseling and Psychological Services, a Division of Student Affairs, offers free online workshops and support groups that are available to all iSchool students. These resources are designed to provide students with a safe space for dialogue and reflection, as well as an opportunity to learn life skills and positive ways to improve academic and personal success.
We believe membership in professional associations will enhance your understanding of the profession and the issues it faces, which is part of the content of INFO 200, MARA 200 and INFM 200. It also encourages connections between the associations and our students.
All students must complete and submit two required SJSU steps by the posted deadlines for the semester you plan to graduate. The first form is the Candidacy Approval form; the second step is the Application for Award of Graduate Degree process done through MySJSU. Make sure you read and understand the instructions for the two separate steps since they will be submitted differently to different offices.
