In 2013, San Jose State University developed University Learning Goals to uniquely define the skills and knowledge of San Jose State University graduates.  These goals help students understand the purpose of their time at SJSU and guide academic planning and curriculum development. 

The SJSU experience is designed to ensure that students have the power to be lifelong learners and have successful futures. This preparation begins as students complete their general education requirements, and continues through SJSU Studies and their majors.

Begin here to learn more about the goals SJSU has for its students, and how those goals power the student experience from lower-division general education programs, through majors and concentrations, and capstone courses.
