Curriculum

General Approach
Courses generally meet once a week in the evening. Study is available on a full- or part-time basis for either focus.

The small size of the Ph.D. program at Seton Hall University allows for frequent faculty interaction and close work with your adviser. We are committed to maintaining a small, selective and focused program that will prepare our graduates to pursue a range of possible careers
