BROOKLYN and PATCHOGUE, N.Y. – St. Joseph’s College (SJC) is pleased to announce that it was ranked by Georgetown University in a new study on highest paid graduates in the nation. SJC was ranked among the top 20 colleges with alumni earning more than expected based on their choice of majors.

“This ranking reaffirms what we already knew about our alumni—they exceed expectations,” said Jack P. Calareso, Ph.D., president of St. Joseph’s College. “St. Joseph’s College graduates continue to work in professions that serve the needs of the community and are also successful in achieving their personal and professional goals.”

The Georgetown University study, which ranked 1,400 four-year colleges and universities by how much money students earn 10 years after starting classes, based their findings on the U.S. Department of Education’s Scorecard, a web tool designed to help students choose a college and get an estimate of how much debt they would accrue, depending on their choice of major or program.

With more than 33,000 graduates, SJC is committed to creating a modern, global community for its alumni population. For more information about SJC, visit
