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.
“The art education major is an art major with an education minor, so this program encourages students to become artists who teach. A great aspect of the major is that students get teaching experience from the very beginning, as opposed to waiting until senior year. Working in a wide variety of learning environments made me a more versatile teacher who is able to address the individual needs of my students.”
