Our Primary Objective

Sciences (GDAS) seeks to foster the creative and intellectual
growth of faculty and students pursuing advanced studies in select
disciplines. Our unique Vincentian/metropolitan environment
provides and encourages advanced knowledge thorough mastery of
research methods and a spirit of inquiry. Our objectives allow
students the advantage of a rigorous yet caring atmosphere that is
suitable for creative scholarly development.
St. John’s graduate students have access to a myriad of academic
resources – essential to helping students become active and
competitive participants in a globally interdependent community. We
are equipped with the most up-to-date technological tools to ensure
that our students are prepared to greet and embrace today’s
increasingly competitive professional world.
Our University libraries are currently home to over 1.5 million
texts and 5,000 periodical subscriptions. Students can also
currently access a limitless amount of information from our
advanced online sources. Access to texts from other universities is
also available through inter-library loan.
Applied science students have the additional benefit of our newly
renovated Chemistry and Biology laboratories. These facilities were
designed to enhance the potential for research and allow students
to test the theoretical concepts they learn in class.
Student Support Services are available to provide students with all
the components of a quality graduate education.
