Health Professions Program
The goal of the Health Professions Program at Seton Hall University is to assist students in developing the necessary credentials to gain entrance into post-baccalaureate programs in the health sciences.
The Health Professions Office is located in room 202A in Arts and Sciences Hall. The secretary for this office is available on M-F from 1:30 to 4:30 p.m. to assist students. The office is a resource for information regarding health professions programs both within and outside the U.S. It has a small lending library of texts that will help the students in their application process or preparation for the MCAT, DAT and OAT exams.
The office will also help students locate volunteer opportunities in regional institutions. Students should check the following website for New Jersey hospitals for internships or volunteer experiences: http://www.njha.com.

Environmental Studies ProgramThe Environmental Studies Program at Seton Hall University prepares students to be global servant leaders who build an environmentally, economically and socially sustainable society, one that balances the needs of people today with those of future generations. This program provides a multidisciplinary opportunity for the study of the complex relationships that exist between human society and the natural environment, and the resulting impact on our communities and individual lives. The course of study challenges students to understand environmental issues from various scientific perspectives, stressing the use of critical thinking, collaborative problem solving and effective communication. Students will also benefit from master classes and panel discussions, sponsored by the United States Environmental Protection Agency, which will bring to campus environmental experts with multiple points of view regarding specific environmental issues, such as urban and suburban sprawl, transportation and air pollution, and watershed management.
