Editor’s note: We had several people contact us about Hacking SJSU and we thank you all for that. This is Brian’s experience and we would love to hear about your experiences (positive, critical, neutral, etc) below in the comments. Because SJSU is such a large, growing and diverse program, we value input from other students! – Heidi
Disclaimer: These are my personal opinion and are not representative of the student body, San Jose State University (SJSU), or the School of Library and Information Sciences (SLIS). Any criticism is meant to be constructive and for the betterment of the program.
I was accepted to all of the University of Arizona’s, Florida State University’s, and San Jose State University’s SLIS programs. I needed a program that allowed me to continue to work full-time as library Staff at Washington State University, had a large and robust Web presence, and did not have a mandatory residency requirement attached to its distance program. For example the University of Arizona required an 11 day stay at the beginning of a student’s course work; this was my “backup” school.
SJSU’s SLIS program allowed for my criteria; that is why I chose them.
