New Spartan Accelerated Graduate Education (SAGE) Program

College Approval Deadline: December 1 (Fall) or September 1 (Spring). Effective term is for the subsequent academic term. For example, if you submit a proposal and receive college approval by December 1, your proposal will be effective the following Fall (in the next calendar year).  

Spartan Accelerated Graduate Education (SAGE) Scholars programs are combined bachelor’s and master’s programs at SJSU. Sometimes they may also satisfy the requirements for a credential. Students in these programs pursue a bachelor’s and master’s degree simultaneously. These programs allow students to earn graduate credit while in their junior and/or senior year, reducing the number of semesters required for completion of a master’s degree.

Before you consider developing a SAGE program, please review information found in our Spartan Accelerated Graduate Education (SAGE) Handbook [pdf] for students and advisors. Contact Jeff Honda if you have any questions.
