University of Saint Joseph


The University of Saint Joseph (Macao) is a Catholic university of China, rooted in a long tradition of intercultural exchange that has been the hallmark of Catholic higher education in Macao since the College of Saint Paul, founded in 1594.

The project of the Jesuit fathers Valignano, Rugieri and Ricci inspires our view of higher education with a universal character capable of promoting creative dialogue between the cultural, scientific, ethical and philosophical traditions of China and Europe.

The combined local and Portuguese roots of the University make it particularly suited to embody at the academic level Macao’s strategic objective to act as a platform from which to boost relations between China and Portuguese-speaking countries.
