Spartans Online - High Demand Courses  

Spartans Online offers a program called "High Demand Courses Online" to provide courses that SJSU students need to progress in their educational goals. Working with Spartans Online, deans, chairs, and faculty identify the courses and instructors to participate in this program. All courses are offered fully online.

International Programs

Faculty-led Programs

Faculty-Led Programs (FLPs) are organized by SJSU faculty members to different parts of the world every summer. FLPs provide short term study abroad experiences (approximately two to eight weeks long abroad) to students while they are enrolled and engaged in a course or courses relevant to their place of travel. FLPs are offered during the summer term and they are intended not only to provide a more affordable and short-term study abroad opportunity for SJSU students, but also to provide an opportunity for SJSU faculty to expand their field knowledge, gain international teaching experience, and establish or reconnect with overseas colleagues and contacts while helping to build a more international SJSU curriculum.

US Fulbright Scholar, Specialist and Fellows Program 

The Silicon Valley Center for Global Studies (SVCGS) brings an important new dimension in international scholarship to the heart of Silicon Valley. It offers 5 types of US Fulbright Programs which are The Fulbright Arctic Initiative, Fulbright Postdoctoral Scholar Awards, US Fulbright Scholar Core Program, US Fulbright Specialist Program and US Fulbright Fellow Program bringing together a network of scholars, and applied researchers from all over the world.

SJSU Salzburg Program

Each year the SJSU Salzburg Program selects a group of faculty, staff, and administrators to serve as SJSU Salzburg Fellows and a group of students to serve as SJSU Salzburg Scholars.  Both groups are sent to a Global Citizenship Program session each summer, either a faculty/admin session or a student session, following which they are expected to spend the subsequent academic year working together on a mix of individual and group projects to help globalize the University through the SJSU Salzburg Mentoring Program.
