We offer specialized courses in addictions counseling, case management, gerontology, family and child welfare, as well as human services administration. Field placements are also included in the course of study to ensure that you have both the knowledge and experience to succeed in the position of your choice.

Flexible Scheduling and Credit for Experience

Creating a schedule that fits into your busy life has never been easier. Regardless of your age, work schedule or other commitments, at St. Joseph’s, we offer flexible scheduling options — including evening and online classes — that can fit the busy lifestyle of any student. In fact, SJC offers students the chance to participate in the Prior Experiential Learning Assessment (PELA) Program, which gives you the opportunity to apply for credit for the experiential learning you have acquired during your career. Validated learning, not the experience alone, is the basis for awarding up to 27 PELA credits.
