Dream Big: St. Francis College

Founded more than 150 years ago by the Franciscan Brothers, the mission of St. Francis has always been to help young people achieve their life dreams of personal and professional success by making a quality college education more affordable.

Generations of St. Francis College graduates have gone on to achieve great success as leaders in business, finance, education, public service, health care and more. And as alumni, they remain actively involved with the College by providing mentoring and internships to the next generation of dreamers. That’s the St. Francis way.

As one of the most affordable private colleges in the New York Metropolitan area and an exceptionally generous financial aid program, St. Francis College’s value-added approach provides an education with all the benefits and opportunities associated with a small private college. It’s no doubt that St. Francis has been consistently ranked by U.S. News & World Report, and Money magazine as a top college.

The College offers more than 70 programs, majors and minors, including the cutting-edge fields of sports management, entrepreneurship and interactive media. Communication arts majors take advantage of the cutting-edge HDTV production studio and art theater, while the five-year combined BS/MS degree in accounting, as well as an MS degree in professional accounting takes graduates on to jobs at some of the best accounting firms in the area. In addition, a five-year combined BA/MA in psychology offers students the benefits of the same degrees but graduating in less time. A graduate-level certificate in project management is also growing in popularity and is designed for individuals who want to enhance their project management skills through an intensive executive-level program. A minor in project management is open to all majors.

With today’s high demand for qualified health care professionals, the healthcare management, health promotion and sciences and other health-related programs are teaching students the necessary skills by conducting research and lab experiments in the college’s newly designed state-of-the-art labs and classrooms. The BS in nursing program is offered to qualified freshmen and transfers, and prepares them to sit for the NCLEX Exam.

Students can commute or to live in the unbeatable location of Brooklyn Heights, the choice is theirs. St. Francis College has partnered with EHS to provide safe and affordable student housing in the newly renovated Residence Hall.
