Students in the Syracuse area can take St. Bernard’s graduate courses in the Diocese of Syracuse. All classes are held at Le Moyne College.

St. Bernard’s understands that our students come from a variety of locations in Upstate New York. Some of these locations are not nearby one of our campus locations. To meet the needs of these students, St. Bernard’s has setup several video-conferencing locations. Taking classes at one of the video-conferencing locations makes taking classes more convenient while still providing a holistic learning experience.
