In order to be involved with KSJS, whether student or non-student, you are required to enroll in San Jose State University courses. KSJS is housed in the Theatre Arts Department where you would enroll in either RTVF 121 or RTVF 21. These courses provide the background necessary in order to complement your participation in KSJS.

At the time you join KSJS, you are classified as either a student, alumnus or volunteer. All participants must take at least one unit of KSJS per semester. If you are unsure of which classification you fit into, please peruse the descriptions below:

SJSU Radio Courses Associated with KSJS

Ksjs Lounge


This course is an upper-division Radio-TV-Film course but can be taken by students of all levels (FROSH, SOPH, JRs, Srs) from any major across the university. Anyone can take it! No add code needed, just sign up! This is an activity class where you work for our campus radio station in any department you choose (Music, Hip-hop, Latin, World, Jazz, Electronic, Sub-Rock, Business, Promotions, Social Media, Sports, Traffic, etc.) You will get real-world experience that looks great on a resume! We have students from all majors, all over campus, working with our station. Such a great networking opportunity. And really a lot of fun.

Ksjs Get In 004


This is a lower-division class, but students at all levels take this class, too! RTVF 21 is our ON-AIR DJ TRAINING class. You will learn how to be a DJ, how to run a broadcast studio and all about FCC rules (you will be certified by midterm). Whether you decide to proceed to be on the radio or not is up to you. But this class is easy and lots of fun! NOTE: In order to take this class, you will have to have taken RTVF 121 before or be concurrently enrolled in it. You can take 121 all by itself, however.

Class meets Mondays 7:00-8:00pm in HGH #124
Contact: Professor [email protected] with questions and/or for an add code.

  • Send pre-produced spots on CD or other form of electronic media. Make sure to include the script. They must be 30 or 60 seconds only.
