SetonWorldWide … A Strategic Initiative that Transforms the University
In 1995, as unprecedented shifts in the landscape of higher education brought about by advances in technology-mediated education began to unfold, the president of Seton Hall University
and its Board of Regents launched a strategic initiative that would transform the university.
Through a series of significant information technology upgrades and the application of this technology and its capabilities to teaching and learning, "a virtual university" was conceived. Flowing from this institutional commitment, a centralized structure was created to provide support for funding, building and maintaining a distance education infrastructure. Two years later, in 1997, Seton Hall’s "online campus" -- SetonWorldWide -- set in motion the impetus for the development of a select number of full degree online programs and certificates.
The Vision of SetonWorldWide
SetonWorldWide supports and extends the University's mission by delivering high-quality, career-enhancing education through a variety of online delivery methods, all of which fully capitalize upon a combination of technologies and instructional methods to maximize the online educational experience.
In collaboration with Seton Hall University's outstanding faculty and on-campus academic programs, SetonWorldWide currently offers eight online graduate degree programs, one online undergraduate degree and four graduate certificate programs:
For 150 years, Seton Hall University has been a catalyst for leadership, developing the whole student -- mind, heart and spirit. The University combines the resources of a large university with the personal attention of a small liberal arts college. A Catholic university that embraces students of all races and religions, Seton Hall challenges all students to better the world through integrity, compassion and a commitment to serving others.
The University and its associated online programs are accredited by the Middle States Association of Colleges and Schools.
SetonWorldWide is a member of the Sloan Asynchronous Learning Network Consortium
, an association of accredited institutions offering online degree or certificate programs committed to quality distance education and is recognized by the U.S. Department of Defense's education network of Defense Activity for meeting military requirements for Non-Traditional Education Support (DANTES)
