The private, not-for-profit University of Saint Joseph enrolls more than 2,500 students, most of whom are female; women make up 99 percent of the student body. The Sisters of Mercy of Connecticut founded the first women’s liberal arts college in Hartford, Connecticut in 1932. Since its beginning, the school has retained its Roman Catholic principles educating students in the fields of education, nursing, human services, the humanities, and the sciences. The University of Saint Joseph states a Roman Catholic mission that “provides a rigorous liberal arts and professional education for a diverse student population while maintaining a strong commitment to developing the potential of women,” in addition to “promot[ing] the growth of the whole person in a caring environment that encourages strong ethical values, personal integrity and a sense of responsibility to the needs of society.”
Saint Joseph offers bachelor’s, master’s, and doctoral degrees, housed in the following schools:
School of Education
School of Graduate and Professional Studies
School of Health & Natural Sciences
School of Humanities & Social Sciences
School of Pharmacy
Online programs at the University of Saint John include several graduate degrees. Courses are asynchronous and students can enroll in the online programs at any time.
