Masters Program

The Masters (M.A.) Program


Applicants must have earned a bachelor degree, or an equivalent, from an accredited institution. Upon acceptance into the Master of Arts program, one is considered non-matriculated until one has completed six credits at the seminary with an earned grade of "B" or better. At that point, one's performance is reviewed, and the status of matriculation as a candidate for a Master of Arts degree is granted

Admission to the M.A. Program

Mail a completed application form which may be downloaded here with a $50.00 non-refundable application fee to St. Joseph's Seminary,  201 Seminary Ave., Yonkers, NY 10704, Attn: Dr. Donna Eschenauer.



Qualified students may be permitted to audit courses. An auditor participates in a course without receiving credit.
