Founded by the Sisters of St. Joseph in 1916, St. Joseph's College has provided an affordable liberal arts education to diverse students. Independent and coeducational, St. Joseph's prepares students for lives of integrity, intellectual and spiritual values, social responsibility and service; lives that are worthy of the College's motto: Esse non-videri — "To be, not to seem."
SJC Brooklyn challenges its approximately 1,200 students to develop their full potential and a joy of learning. The College enjoys a student-to-faculty ratio with more than 500 faculty members that provides individual attention in an open, supportive atmosphere.
The College’s location in Brooklyn puts it at the centre of one of the nation’s most diverse academic and cultural cities. The Brooklyn Academy of Music, the Brooklyn Public Library and the Brooklyn Museum of Art are minutes away from the College’s doors.
