Growing With the Times

St. Joseph’s University, New York continuously adds new programs that help students prepare to enter an ever-changing workforce.

Among the University’s new programs are two standouts in the field of education, an M.S. in Applied Behavior Analysis to its Online Campus, and nine new dual degrees.

“We are successful because we adapt to the changing landscape,” said SJNY Provost and Vice President for Academic Affairs Heather Barry, Ph.D. “New programs breathe new life into the institution.”

New to the education offerings is an M.A. in Special Education with an Annotation in Severe and Multiple Disabilities that prepares students for initial certification. Students are exposed to the theory and practice of several distinct areas, including assessment, inclusion of family, psychological and social characteristics, and supports for students with physical impairments.

Newly offered on the Brooklyn Campus this fall is an M.A. in Teaching English to Speakers of Other Languages (TESOL). Joining the existing program at the Long Island Campus, the degree prepares students with innovative ways to teach a diverse group of children the foundations of the English language.

SJNY’s new M.S. in Applied Behavior Analysis offers students an enriched background in behavior analytic theory, as well as comprehensive training and supervision in the practice of behavior analytical assessment and intervention for individuals with autism, autism spectrum conditions or related neurodiverse conditions.
