Outstanding Academics

Your Academic Journey Begins Here

Confused by all those college rankings and lists? All you really need to know is that Seton Hall University is committed to academic excellence — and has the record to prove it. U.S. News & World Report thought so highly of our more than 60 undergraduate majors and concentrations that it ranked us among the country’s top 125 universities. We were also named one of the top 110 universities in the nation by Choosing the Right College — a guidebook that lists Seton Hall alongside Harvard, Yale, MIT and other ivy league schools.

14:1 Student-to-Faculty Ratio

And if you worry that you will be just one of many students vying for your professors’ time, you can relax. At Seton Hall, you are more than just a number. We offer all the resources of a large institution to less than 5,000 undergraduates and approximately 3,000 graduate students. Most classes average 21 students and fewer than 4 percent of courses taught by teaching assistants. Our low student-to-faculty ratio of 14:1 ensures that you get the personal attention you need.

Outstanding Academics During their first two years, undergraduate students are exposed to a world of ideas from great scholars, opening your mind to the perspectives, history and achievements of many cultures. This approach helps many of our students chose their majors and minors, while giving them plenty of time to focus on these areas in their third and fourth years. We offer core courses in broad range of disciplines within our five undergraduate schools and colleges:

  • College of Arts and Sciences – offering an impressive 33 majors and 34 minors in fields ranging from English, art and music to physics and health professions.
  • College of Education and Human Services – with 95 percent of our students passing the national teaching exam in 2004-2005, it’s not surprising that education graduates have a nearly 100 percent job placement rating (2005).
  • College of Nursing – educating more than one-third of New Jersey’s nurses; all N.J. hospital staffs include Seton Hall nursing graduates.   
  • John C. Whitehead School of Diplomacy and International Relations – among our faculty are six current and former ambassadors and U.N. officials.
  • Stillman School of Business – our unique Leadership Studies Program pairs undergraduates with high-level mentors from leading companies such as Johnson & Johnson, Cendant and Deloitte, to name a few.

Advanced Degrees

If you're looking for graduate educational opportunities, you can select from 80+ advanced degree, certificate and adult education programs, in addition to the graduate programs offered through Seton Hall’s three graduate schools and online graduate degree programs:

  • School of Health and Medical Sciences – featuring programs in athletic training, physician assistant and speech-language pathology, all of which boast a 100 percent job placement record (2005).
  • Immaculate Conception School of Theology – the major seminary of the Catholic Archdiocese of Newark, ICSST also offers graduate programs and certificates for lay students.
  • School of Law (Newark campus) – stellar programs include our Health Law and Policy Program, currently ranked fourth in the nation by U.S. News and World Report (2005).
  • SetonWorldWide – there’s no better option for busy students and professionals seeking quality graduate and continuing education within a flexible, technologically advanced environment.

Choosing Seton Hall is just the start of your academic journey. Our rigorous programs, dedicated faculty and small classes will support you as you learn, grow and prepare to become a responsible leader in a global society.
