I like the programs and classes that I have enrolled in thus far. They help us academically with enrolling in classes in a proper time frame. The MySJSU website is such a helpful tool that keeps us on target to make sure we are ahead of the game and getting our items completed in a timely manner to avoid wait lists and so forth.

Student at This School - Grad Year 2013

Academics Rating

The workload is pretty standard for a master's program, maybe even a little on the light side. Class size is wonderful: about 15-25 usually. The Philosophy program is mostly slanted towards the phenomenology and existential side of philosophy. The professors are very accessible and willing to help.
