PCJ Description

Founded over 120 years ago, Pontifical College Josephinum is a Catholic seminary with a global focus. Its students come from dioceses throughout the world, and PCJ graduates serve the Church in more than 20 foreign countries.

Pontifical College Josephinum’s academics include both undergraduate and graduate degrees, administered through two schools. The College of Liberal Arts offers bachelor’s degrees in Philosophy and Humanities. The School of Theology offers the Bachelor of Sacred Theology and Master of Divinity degree programs.

In addition to these programs, the Josephinum also provides a pre-theology academic program to prepare students for the School of Theology. This program, which results in a Bachelor of Philosophy, is intended for students who have already earned a bachelor’s degree.

Student life at the Josephinum fosters human, spiritual and pastoral formation. Prayer is the foundation of campus living, but the average day also consists of coursework, exercise and time for personal reflection.

PCJ offers several financial aid opportunities, including need-based federal and state aid. The school also funds several scholarships, many of which are based on both need and merit.
