Saint Joseph's University was founded by the Jesuits — visionary Catholic priests and educators who prioritized social justice, the pursuit of excellence, service to others, and the development of the whole person, or, cura personalis. One of only 28 universities and colleges nationwide exemplifying this 500-year- old Jesuit tradition, SJU offers each of its students an educational experience that will hone their skills, expand their knowledge, grow their faith and strengthen their character.
“My experience with the language department and the Italian Program, in general, was amazing. All of the professors in the Italian department are the nicest people you have ever met and are always happy to help you. I was able to study in Italy numerous times and I also had internships both in Italy as well as in Philadelphia that have certainly helped me in regards to future job prospects. My four years at Saint Joseph's would never have been the same without the faculty.”
