About St. John's University

St. John's University is a Catholic Vincentian school in New York City that offers programs designed to prepare students for professional and personal success. The school was originally founded in 1870 and offers a variety of highly-ranked undergraduate and graduate programs with globally focused curriculums that are aligned with current industry standards. St. John's also offers a selection of online graduate degree and certificate programs that provide adult learners the opportunity to receive a high-quality education in a more flexible format.

Online programs are available in a variety of business, finance, education, and liberal arts. Students can choose from programs such as a M.S. in Accounting, M.S. in Library and Information Science, Ph.D. in Literacy, M.S. in Taxation, or M.B.A. The online courses are taught by the same faculty who teach the on-campus courses and include the same rigorous workload.

The courses are asynchronous so students can log in anytime that works for them as long as they are meeting course deadlines. Online students use Blackboard to access lectures, assignments, and tests; they can also participate in class discussion boards and contact their professors.

'I was motivated to participate in online learning because I switched my major as a sophomore and declared a minor as a junior, so I needed to fulfill several additional credits in order to graduate on time. I dedicated three to five hours to each online class per week. I appreciated that the syllabus for each class provided detailed information on assignments, including their due dates, so that I could plan accordingly. The online learning experience has been a successful one for me.'

Ashley Evans

'St. John's University's online courses provide a stimulating environment where you're able to take control of how you learn. As a current junior studying computer security, I have taken four unique online courses. These classes have improved my ability to conduct research, communicate with my peers through a virtual environment, and explore the ways I learn best. Every professor has been supportive in providing constructive feedback and timely e-mail responses. They really engage students in collaborative discussions.'

Layal Elaraby

'As a married mother who works full time, I found distance learning an ideal option. I appreciated the convenience of being able to access the course materials, lectures, assignments, and tests in the convenience of my own home.'
