St. Joseph’s College (SJC) is a liberal arts college in New York State, with campuses located in the Clinton Hill area of Brooklyn, and in Patchogue, Long Island.
Established in 1916 and originally named St. Joseph’s College for Women, the college was founded by the Sisters of St. Joseph of Brentwood, in response to the need for a day college for young women. It is the only historical women’s college in the borough of Brooklyn, NY.
In 1970, a Charter amendment changed the name to St. Joseph’s College and enabled the college to admit the first male students to full matriculation.
