Faculty of Scholar Practitioners

When researching and choosing graduate programs, the caliber of instruction takes on added importance, often becoming the primary differentiator. At Saint Joseph’s University, our faculty of scholar practitioners is the very definition of educational excellence, a hallmark of our Jesuit tradition.

The Graduate Studies faculty not only teaches, but “does.” Our professors are well-recognized and respected by their peers, often prominent in their fields for tens of years.

  Many of our instructors conduct funded research, sit on non- and for-profit boards, and advise institutions; all are published and expert in their discipline. Featured here on a rotating basis are but a few biographies of both full- and assistant professors as an introduction; most programs list their complete faculty for your review. Should you have further questions, don’t hesitate to contact a departmental advisor directly.
