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.
"I chose psychology as my major because I’ve always wanted to help others get through difficult life experiences. The program prepares you to further your education by allowing you opportunities to work in different professors’ labs. I also enrolled in the 5-year BS/MS program, which has allowed me to work on my master’s degree while finishing my bachelor’s. I’ve also always wanted to be a teacher, and with my master’s in psychology, I can do both."
