Saint Joseph’s College is a private and independent learning institution with two campuses – one in Brooklyn and the other in Patchogue, both in New York. Founded in 1916 by the Sisters of Saint Joseph of Brentwood as Saint Joseph’s College for Women, the school was established in response to the clamor for a day college for young women. As enrollment grew, the need for a bigger location became apparent and the college moved to one of its current locations in Clinton Avenue in Brooklyn. The college granted its first Bachelor’s degrees in 1920. By 1970, a Charter amendment changed the name of the college to Saint Joseph’s College thereby allowing male students to enroll and making the institution fully coeducational. In 1979, a modern branch campus was erected in Patchogue complete with all the state-of-the-art facilities.
Today, there are 5,038 undergraduate and 678 graduate students enrolled at Saint Joseph’s College ably assisted in their quest for higher education by 500 faculty members. With the student to faculty ratio at a low 15 to 1, students of the College are guaranteed focused, one-on-one interaction with their professors. The College offers over 23 undergraduate majors, pre-professional and certificate programs, with graduate degrees in management, business, health care management, nursing, accounting and education. Latest additions to the College’s curriculum are its Master of Science in Human Services Management and Leadership and a new online Executive M.B.A. program.
Cost of tuition and fees vary according to the chosen degree program and courses chosen. Regardless of the chosen degree program, the College extends financial aid in the form of loans, grants and scholarships to ensure that students are able to pay for their cost of tuition and fees.
