Saint Joseph’s University has added nine new majors and minors. The College of Arts and Sciences will now offer major programs in biology and secondary education (double major), information technology, linguistics, and secondary education, as well as minors in creative writing, educational studies, and justice and ethics in the law. The Haub School of Business has added a major in entertainment marketing and a minor in pharmaceutical and healthcare marketing (for non-business students).
With these additions, the College of Arts and Sciences now offers more than 80 major and minor programs, and the Haub School of Business offers more than 20 majors and minors.
“Offerings at Saint Joseph’s University will always evolve to meet current and prospective students’ needs and interests,” says Rosalind Reichard, Ph.D., interim University provost. “Our new programs in information technology, linguistics, education, law, and marketing prepare students to be competitive in today’s job market, while promoting the University’s Jesuit values and mission.”
