Research shows that having a mentor makes people successful. To ensure your success, SJC professors will be your mentors, your guides. Our professors will help you gain experience in your chosen field of interest through real-life academics, which is the hands-on learning that Saint Joseph's College is known for. You will learn in small group discussions with personal attention from faculty, and you will reinforce what you learn in the classroom by actively working on your major outside the classroom, guided by your professor. To add even more experience, you can participate in internships, service learning, campus jobs, and job shadowing.
If you want to know how current students and alumni feel about their faculty mentors, read the success stories in the major or minor you're interested in.
You'll have opportunities to work with your professors on research, special projects, and creative endeavors. Students have published scholarly articles and have led campaigns, clubs, outreach activities, publications, and even programs.
