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 German major covers a wide a variety of topics from business to film, history to literature. Each semester I learned something new and the vocabulary that was essential to each topic. Another important aspect that cannot be overlooked is the relationship formed between the professors and students. The classes were small and comfortable which encouraged participation and discussions. I could not be happier with my experience and would choose to do it all over again!"
