Saint Joseph Seminary College Campus - LAICU
Saint Joseph Seminary College is a private four-year liberal arts college operated by the Benedictine Monks of Saint Joseph Abbey and the dioceses of the ecclesiastical provinces of New Orleans and Mobile. The 1200-acre piney woods campus is located north of Covington and 45 miles from New Orleans. Fully accredited, Saint Joseph Seminary College awards the Bachelor of Arts degree with majors in Philosophy and the Liberal Arts or Philosophy and Religious Studies. There is also a two-year pre-theology program for students who have already attained a college degree. While the core of its academic program remains the college curriculum, Saint Joseph Seminary College has a broader scope: the program of Spiritual Foundation is one of the distinguishing features of this institution. With its small and diverse population of full-time students residing on campus, this unique undergraduate institution is rich in its liturgical and cultural tradition.
