The mission of St. Joseph’s College is to provide a strong academic and value-oriented education at the undergraduate and graduate levels, rooted in a liberal arts tradition that supports provision for career preparation and enhancement.
Courses numbered 100 are open to all students without prerequisites. Ordinarily, courses numbered 200, 300, and 400 have prerequisites and may not be taken by freshmen. Consult the individual department course listing for exceptions to this general policy.
Students are advised to check the final schedule of courses published before each advisement period.
The following courses may be offered during the 2017-2018 academic year—including Summer, Fall, Intersession, and/or Spring semesters/sessions/trimesters at both SJC Brooklyn and SJC Long Island, unless otherwise noted. Not all of these courses will be available at night or on weekends at SJC Brooklyn and SJC Long Island. Consult the semestral schedule of courses for more specific information, including the SJC Long Island Weekend College Trimester Program.
Online Courses: Academic departments sometimes offer courses in an online format. Check the semester course schedule for details.
CO-CURRICULAR WORKSHOP IN MUSIC may be offered for academic credit in accordance with the policy that students may earn 1/2 credit per semester for a total of two credits toward the degree for participation in co-curricular activities approved for credit by the faculty. Consult the Moderator of the Choral Society, Jazz Ensemble or the Music Performance Club.
The emphasis of studio courses is to guide the students in discovering and expressing their creative musical potential. Exposure to varied techniques and approaches offers the beginning as well as the advanced student, a broad scope for individual growth and expression.
Students under the direction and guidance of faculty develop a learning contract for each clinical nursing course. The learning contracts are designed in accord with the student’s academic and professional background and the objectives of the course. The use of the learning contract provides for student self-direction and participation in the selection of their learning experiences. Clinical hours are planned on a to-be-arranged basis.
The Department of Nursing reserves the prerogative to adjust admission and program requirements in response to changes in accreditation or credentialing/registration criteria.
