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.
“As an aspiring music therapist, the individual guidance and caring support of the music faculty has allowed me to fall in love with the ways in which music affects the body physiologically and psychologically. In addition, the Summer Scholars Program has given me the opportunity to acquire skills needed for future courses and programs. After all, not many students can say they spent their entire summer composing music for a musical.”
