Overview

An Intimate Liberal Arts Learning Community in New York

Since 1916, St. Joseph's College has educated students in the liberal arts tradition, preparing them for the future by pushing them to challenge themselves intellectually, spiritually, and culturally. This is exemplified by the school's motto: "To be, not to seem."

St. Joseph's College has 2 different campuses in New York -- one in Brooklyn, and one in Long Island. Both campuses boast small student communities; the total student population at St. Joseph's College consists of over 5,000 undergraduates. In addition, the student-to-professor ratio is 15:1, allowing faculty to work closely with students and develop lasting academic relationships.

St. Joseph's College has been repeatedly recognized for its commitment to providing individualized, quality education to students. For the eighth consecutive year, St. Joseph's College has been ranked among America's Best Colleges by "U.S. News and World Report and Forbes."

A Core Curriculum that Provides Breadth and Balance

St. Joseph's core curriculum requires students to take certain courses within the first 3 years of study. Students must take classes in English composition as well as the humanities; historical, social, behavioral, and natural sciences; and mathematics. By completing such varied coursework, students develop a balanced and vast knowledge base that will serve them in future professions and academic study.

Variety of Majors and Minors

Students at St. Joseph's choose from Bachelor of Arts (B.A.) and Bachelor of Science (B.S.) degrees in more than 29 program areas of study. Popular majors at St. Joseph's College include accounting, education, criminal justice, recreation and leisure studies, and biology.

In addition to the undergraduate majors, St. Joseph's students can earn minors in nearly 30 subject areas, including religious studies, computer information systems, chemistry, and human relations, to name a few. Students also have the freedom to create and design certain interdisciplinary minors that reflect their individual interests in varied departments. Examples of interdisciplinary minors are film studies, Latin American studies, and American studies.

Career-focused Programs for Undergraduates

Several programs are in place to help undergraduates increase their marketability and skill sets as they prepare to head out into the workplace. Career readiness tracks, certificate programs, and pre-professional programs prepare students for future careers or graduate work through a combination of academic and elective courses in a chosen subject area.

For example, the college has designed career readiness tracks in 11 disciplines, such as mental health work, government services, and counseling, as well as several certificate programs in areas like marketing, management, and health instruction. Availability and requirements for these programs vary between the Brooklyn and Long Island campuses.

Unique Opportunities for Global Studies

The college strongly promotes study abroad programs that allow for personal growth, career development, and educational enrichment. Members of the St. Joseph's College community have the opportunity to participate in short- and long-term global studies programs. Short-term study abroad programs include weeklong or month-long projects at locations such as Alicante, Spain; Leon, Nicaragua; and York, England.

Students can also arrange long-term semester stays to study at other international institutions. The main study abroad program is at the University of the Sunshine Coast, in Queensland, Australia. This program does not require knowledge of a foreign language, and is open to the majority of students.

Financial aid and scholarships are available to assist students during their time abroad.
