Explore, Discover, Land

A Saint Joseph’s education gives you broad knowledge, essential skills, an appreciation for diversity and an ethical backbone — it’s a liberal arts education rooted in the Jesuit tradition. Our classes are small, discussion-based and enhanced with real-world experience, so you’ll also be challenged to discover even more about yourself, think critically and solve tough problems. By the time you graduate, you’ll be ready to meet the needs of a fast-changing world.

From day one, your faculty advisor will work with you to get the most out of your time at Saint Joseph’s. Our core curriculum will push you to venture into new academic territory. When it’s time to choose a major, you’ll have found your passion — or passions. Here, you can even double or triple major or add a minor not only within a school but also across them.

Find Your Program

Saint Joseph’s has a wide variety of majors and minors, graduate programs, degree completion and certificate programs. Here, you can choose a traditional academic path, or you can combine majors across school, explore stackable options or enroll in a dual-degree program.
