BRING THE WORLD YOUR BEST

If you are looking for an excellent college education that will prepare you for a purposeful life of achievement, leadership and service, you will find it at St. Joseph's College. U.S. News & World Report lists St. Joseph's among the top 20 comprehensive colleges in the North. We are accredited by the Middle States Commission on Higher Education and take pride in our national reputation for quality academics. What’s more, we are consistently ranked as one of New York’s most affordable private colleges.

In addition to quality and affordability, we offer our students — traditional undergraduates, graduate students and returning adults — experiences that they treasure for a lifetime. Our students aspire to contribute their best to the world, and they work hard to prepare themselves to engage positively and productively in their personal and professional lives. Along with a dedication to learning, they bring camaraderie, enthusiasm and good humor.

But don’t take our word for it.

    "I’m focusing on English and I’m going to go into journalism. I’m taking Journalism and New Media Studies classes right now. I absolutely love it, I’m so excited. I’m going to end up getting an internship with JVC broadcasting, which is my local country radio station and my favorite music. Hopefully I can get a full-time job through the internship!"

    "I’m a biology major. I originally wanted to be dual certified as a bio and history teacher, but I decided that I wanted to do pharmaceutical work instead. I was drawn to the rigor of the program at SJC, and I knew it would be ideal for pharmacy school applications."

    "I didn’t expect SJC to be as welcoming as they were. It made the transition from high school very comfortable. Everyone is very friendly. Criminal justice is my major, I want to go into law enforcement and be a police officer."
