Founded in 1932 by the Sisters of Mercy of Connecticut, the University of Saint Joseph is an accredited educational institution focused on preparing you for a successful future, both in your career and in your contribution to society as a whole. With small class sizes and a variety of available courses and degrees, an education at the University of Saint Joseph can challenge you to reach your full potential.
At USJ, we are more than a professional education institution for men and women: we are a tight-knit community that seeks to develop every aspect of what makes someone successful. When you graduate, you will not only have the benefit of a first-class education, but you will have a strong sense of personal integrity, the desire and need to serve others, and ethical values that are second to none.CORE VALUES
Our advanced academic programs approach education with the real world in mind. Our five schools of distinction help you hone in on your true passion as you take the first step towards the rest of your life.
USJ’s versatile classes make education easier than ever. We offer traditional classroom settings, but we limit our class sizes (an average of 14 students per class) to ensure you get the personalized attention you need for success. Additionally, you can receive your education through online courses or at one of our partner local coed colleges.
USJ offers 26 undergraduate programs for men and women. Men and women can also take advantage of our evening and weekend career-focused graduate programs. We pride ourselves in having one faculty member for every 10 students, a ratio that can help push you further.Schedule a visit today!
