B.A. in Speech with Minors in Psychology and Therapeutic Recreation

"When I started my college experience in 2018, I did not expect to be this motivated and successful. The excitement I feel when I am asked to speak about my acquired knowledge and experience is second to none. I have gained a heightened sense of confidence and leadership in and out of the classroom. Every faculty member has been a positive partner and educator throughout my four years. Both faculty and my classmates have continued to encourage me to become the student I always wanted to be and the future clinician I hope to be."

Speech Major, English Minor

"St. Joseph's University has so much to offer to its students. The communication studies curriculum has successfully prepared me for graduate school through the amazing opportunities it has given me. This includes an executive position in the NSSLHA club and an internship at Staten Island University Hospital's speech department. I have the pleasure of assisting speech pathologists in evaluating stroke patients with swallowing disorders. These moments strengthen my knowledge in the field and reassure me that this is the right career path for me."
