Saint Joseph's University was founded by the Jesuits — visionary Catholic priests and educators who prioritized social justice, the pursuit of excellence, service to others, and the development of the whole person, or, cura personalis. One of only 28 universities and colleges nationwide exemplifying this 500-year- old Jesuit tradition, SJU offers each of its students an educational experience that will hone their skills, expand their knowledge, grow their faith and strengthen their character.
"I chose IHS as my major because I knew my career path would be in the medical field, but I simply did not know what yet. Many of the professors have their masters or doctorate and are from a variety of health backgrounds, so you basically have a 'library' of medical people to speak and consult with right off the bat. My professors have been an invaluable resource to me, and I am so grateful that I had them to guide me over the past four years."
