The College practices the motto, Esse non videri: “To be and not to seem.” From its physical expansion to the continual introduction of new programs and technology updates, step-by-step St. Joseph’s College of New York has progressed forward into the twenty-first century. St. Joseph’s College offers liberal arts undergraduate and graduate programs, including degrees and certificates, in the fields of management, business, health care management, human services, nursing, accounting and education. Founded in 1916, the private, not-for-profit coeducational St. Joseph’s College enrolls approximately 5,000 students on campuses in Brooklyn and Patchogue (Long Island), New York. Student-faculty ratio is 15:1.
St. Joseph’s College is accredited by the Middle States Commission on Higher Education recognized by the U.S. Secretary of Education and the Council for Higher Education Accreditation. Programs are registered with the New York State Education Department. In addition, education programs are accredited by the New York State Board of Regents and the Recreation and Leisure Studies program is accredited by the Council on Accreditation of Parks, Recreation, Tourism and Related Professions.

St. Joseph encourages working adults to further their education by participating in online programs focusing on business, management, organizational behavior and human resources. Students can choose from five different paths.

The Master’s Executive program enrolls students with considerable work experience desiring to advance their knowledge and managerial skills through the completion of 36-credit hours of coursework, while the Bachelor’s in Organizational Management prepares prospective leaders for the business world. Both certificate and degree classes are taught asynchronously and retain the “same educational benefits” as student counterparts enrolled in on-campus programs.

Students will need to submit their application, along with official transcripts. International students will also need to submit TOEFL or IETLS scores for proof of English language proficiency.
