Student & Graduate Reviews (9)
St. Joseph's College is an amazing college to go to especially if you are pursuing to be a teacher. They have a small nursing program and there's also student in Psychology/Speech field. For those wanting to be teachers, you get a hands-on experience (observations) and professors who are knowledgeable about the field. Overall, I would highly recommend this college.
My undergraduate experiences at St. Joseph's College had provided me with a sufficient background in coursework in the field of psychology. I believe that my experiences at this school greatly prepared me for my current academic institution at St. John's University, as I am presently pursuing my MsED in Clinical Mental Health Counseling. Although the coursework I had completed at St. Joseph's College had not offered extensive clinical internship experience, I was however able to learn a significant amount about conducting research, which had helped me succeed at the graduate level. In addition to this, the significant overlap of content reflected in coursework prepared me to a great extent for extending my knowledge regarding what it means to be an effective counselor and theoretical approaches to apply in real life application within my field of study.
I recommend this college to anyone thinking about pursuing a career in education. The staff of professors are wonderful and genuinely care about their students. There are many employment opportunities that are given to students because they are St. Joe's grads!
St. Joseph' s College has truly prepared me for the field of education. The professors are experienced and personable! They truly care about their students and are always willing to help with whatever is needed. I would definitely recommend this college to people considering the field of education! I am now a prekindergarten teacher for a UPK program and am gaining my experience, as well as making many connections with other educators!
St. Joseph's College is a great establishment. It is not the typical big college experience, but if you are interested in actually getting to know your professors, get help when needed, and be in a closer knit atmosphere then St. Joe's is for you. I know first hand the difference between a larger university and a smaller college and for me, I prefer the smaller college. At the larger Universities I found it difficult to track down professors and a majority of time they didn't even know who I was. During my time at St. Joseph's College, I never had trouble getting in contact with a professor, they instantly knew who I was, and there was not a single professor who didn't genuinely want me to succeed.
St. Joseph's College was the best college I could have asked to go to in order to receive my teaching degree. They greatly prepared me to be a teacher. I was able to pass all of my teacher certification exams on the first try thanks to their program. St. Joseph's also allowed me to be dual certified in general and special education from birth-6th grade, an opportunity that I would have missed if I attended any other program. They made me find my passion in special education and I am grateful for that. Although I missed three semesters due to medical problems, the teachers there were amazing and helped me to graduate only one semester late. I would recommend St. Joseph's College to anyone interested in the field of teaching.
St. Joseph's College is a school that truly cares about each and every one of its students. The professors I have had are so wonderful. The program has prepared me to become a better teacher, educator, and person. St. Joseph's College is a perfect school if you are looking for small class sizes and a location close to home!
St. Joseph's College is a accredited college that has given me the tools necessary to be a successful and effective teacher. The quality of instruction was superb as I learned different literacy strategies to help all types of learners. The program is wonderful as it allows students to work individually with students in a clinic setting to apply and practice those strategies that were learned. I would recommend this college to anyone who is interested in the literacy and cognition graduate program.
Joining the child study program at St. Joseph's College was the best decision I could have ever made. It is a lot of work and effort, but it was well worth it. I got a job offer from every interview I went on and felt more prepared than anyone I knew from other schools. I have nothing negative to say about it.
