"The small class sizes allow you to get to know your professors, which make it easy to approach them with questions or ask them for advice."
For nearly 160 years Seton Hall has been a place where leaders learn. A leading Catholic university, Seton Hall offers more than 90 rigorous academic programs that are highly ranked by The Princeton Review, U.S.News and World Report and Bloomberg Businessweek.
Seton Hall offers all the advantages of a large research university — a national reputation, challenging academic programs, notable alumni, state-of-the-art facilities, renowned faculty and extensive opportunities for internships, research and scholarship — with all benefits of a small, supportive and nurturing community.
Personal attention is a hallmark of a Seton Hall education. We pride ourselves on small classes and dedicated faculty members who know more than just your name. With an average class size of 21 students and a 14:1 student-to-faculty ratio, our faculty make an effort to understand what matters most to you and build on your personal passions to mentor and guide you in your academic and career endeavors.
Unlike other large research institutions that often rely heavily on teaching assistants, at Seton Hall, you learn directly from accomplished faculty members who are leaders in their fields: scholars, researchers, authors, artists, filmmakers, former school superintendents and principals, nursing leaders, former ambassadors, analysts and lawmakers as well as dozens of Fulbright scholars. Using the insights and expertise they’ve gained in the field, our faculty prepare you for real-world success after college.
Unprecedented access to faculty and hands-on learning opportunities cultivate an enriching environment where students work side-by-side with educators — in the classroom, in labs, in practicum and internship settings — to create an immersive learning experience.
As early as freshman year, students have the opportunity to participate alongside faculty in cutting-edge, grant-funded research as well as the chance to present at national conferences with their research partners — a distinction usually reserved for graduate students.
Seton Hall is a unique and special place. Students reap all the benefits of a prestigious national research institution — challenging academic programs, notable alumni, state-of-the-art facilities, renowned faculty, extensive resources and opportunities for professional growth — with an advantage most other research institutions cannot provide: small classes led by dedicated, accessible faculty who are focused on the success of every individual they teach.
