St. Joseph's University

Saint Josephs University is a nationally recognized, Catholic, Jesuit university. For more than 150 years, Saint Josephs has advanced the professional and personal ambitions of men and women by providing a rigorous Jesuit education--one that demands high achievement, expands knowledge, deepens understanding, stresses effective reasoning and communication, develops moral and spiritual character, and imparts enduring pride. One of only 153 schools with a Phi Beta Kappa chapter and business school accreditation by AACSB International, Saint Josephs is home to over 4,600 traditional, full-time undergraduates studying in over 40 academic majors and more than 900 challenging courses. In addition, the distinguished research faculty concentrate on teaching and approximately 99 percent of tenure-track faculty hold doctoral or terminal degrees. Faculty make students a priority and foster one-on-one mentoring relationships with students. Through the Summer Scholars Program, students conduct original research under the guidance of a faculty mentor and earn a stipend while doing so. At Saint Josephs, academic excellence is defined by a high-quality curriculum, expert faculty, and a talented student body. In the College of Arts and Sciences, students select a major among three divisions: humanities, natural sciences and mathematics, and social sciences. Whether it is through reading the classics as an English major or discussing world politics as an international relations major, students in the College of Arts and Science not only develop a perspective on the world, but also learn to use that perspective to make a difference in their respective fields. At the Erivan K. Haub School of Business (HSB), the worlds future leaders are taught by professors who achieved incredible success in their own corporate careers. Students are not merely taught in classrooms but in state-of-the art academic facilities, including a Wall Street Trading Room. Students may also take advantage of the Cooperative Education program, which integrates formal classroom training with paid work experience. Home of the largest food marketing program in the U.S. and the Pedro Arrupe Center for Business Ethics, HSB sculpts its young men and women to be innovative, professional, successful and ethical business leaders. A Saint Josephs education is not only earned in the classroom. Many Hawks spend their semester breaks volunteering on the Gulf Coast, in Appalachia, in New Mexico and beyond, proving that being men and women for others isnt simply an ideal but a way of life. At the Career Development Center, students are prepared for life after Saint Josephs. In a recent post-graduate survey, over 93 percent of graduates are either employed, serving in full time volunteer programs or in the military, and/or pursuing additional education. Education is also cultivated on the fields and courts of 20 varsity Division I teams; through membership in more than 100 activities and organizations; and in the communities of the residence halls. Saint Josephs students are a dynamic group of individuals, committed to academic excellence, as diverse in their interests as they are in their backgrounds, yet united by a drive to succeed and improve the world around them. One of Saint Josephs goals is to make a 21st century collegiate education an affordable reality for all those prepared to strive for excellence and balance in both learning and living. On average, 90 percent of our students receive merit and/or need based financial assistance. Hawk Hill is an attractive 114-acre campus noted for its distinctive architecture, located in a suburban setting on the western edge of historic Philadelphia. Saint Josephs provides ready access to the vast career opportunities and cultural resources of one of Americas largest cities, while affording students a cohesive and intimate campus experience. http://www.sju.edu/mission-statement
