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 part of my international relations major curriculum I took an introductory economics class freshman year. Once I started the readings and assignments, it fascinated me. Taking economics courses really helped me to understand how and why countries interact the way they do. The program also helped me gain an understanding of the world of business, which I previously had known little about. It’s a great complement to your education regardless of whether you're a business or humanities major."
