Welcome to Undergraduate Arts & Sciences

Education in the Arts & Sciences - the humanities and the natural and social sciences – is at the heart of our Jesuit tradition at Saint Joseph’s University. Our education prepares you for a productive and engaged life and not simply for making a living. By helping you to sharpen your ability to think critically, to analyze information and problems, to communicate persuasively and effectively, all within the context of moral discernment, we enable you to develop your full potential as a human being and as a responsible global citizen. You will then be ready to assume the career you desire as well as be prepared for a future you cannot yet imagine.

We invite you to look around our site and explore the many areas of study, or to ask us directly about the exciting opportunities and career paths our programs offer. All of us in the College of Arts & Sciences look forward to welcoming you as a member of our vibrant Philadelphia campus community, where you will discover your own spirit, intellect, and purpose.
