Saint Joseph’s College (Indiana)


Saint Joseph’s College is known for its nationally recognized Core Program under which students learn the basics of history, political science, natural science, literature and philosophy in integrated “core classes”. This departs from the cafeteria-style approach to general education used by most colleges and universities in which students take discrete lower division classes in these subjects.

Saint Joseph’s College, named a “character-building college” by the Templeton Foundation and a “Best Midwestern College” by the Princeton Review, is a four-year, Catholic college offering 26 majors, 4 group majors, 32 minors,  and 10 pre-professional programs, complemented by the nationally acclaimed Core Program. SJC also offers three master’s degree programs.

Founded and sponsored by the Missionaries of the Precious Blood, SJC is located in Rensselaer, Indiana, approximately 90 minutes from both Chicago and Indianapolis, on a park-like campus of 180 acres and has an enrollment of nearly 1,200 students.
