Benefits of Attending Summer Sessions at Seton Hall University  

Students WalkingSummer provides an opportunity for people to look forward to a break in their typical year-round routines. It is a time to re-energize, retool and refresh. Take advantage of new prospects and develop leading-edge skills to remain professionally competitive.

Registration for Seton Hall's Summer Sessions opens Monday, March 28, 2022. Several sessions are running:

May 24 - June 13 Intersession A
June 14 - July 1 Intersession B
May 31 - July 1 Summer I
July 5 - August 4 Summer II
August 8 - August 26 Summer III

The University is offering current Seton Hall undergraduate students a $1,500 grant to help make summer study more affordable when they take two summer courses (minimum 6 credits). The discount does not apply to new enrollees or visiting students.

"At Seton Hall University, we have a great lineup of summer course offerings. Whether you are a current or visiting undergraduate or graduate student who wants to accelerate your program, ease up your fall schedule, or complete a prerequisite, there are so many options," said Karen Passaro, J.D., dean of the Division of Continuing Education and Professional Studies at Seton Hall. "Our summer sessions which run from May to August enable you to move ahead along your graduation path. As students' travel and work schedules vary, we have a terrific complement of web-based and in-person course choices."

An example of an online course is History of Africa I (HIST 1501/AFAM 1201), which takes a broad approach to the study of Africa by examining its role within major trends of global history. “As this is a short and largely asynchronous course, it provides students with a much-needed flexibility during the summer months,” said Professor of History Maxim Matusevich, Ph.D., who is teaching the course during Session II.

For college students who "live" the sciences and mathematics and find the summer as a chance to get a head start, many gravitate toward Astronomy, Intro to Biology, Human Anatomy and Physiology, General Biology, Forensic Biology, General Chemistry, Organic Chemistry, Finite Mass with Calculus for Business, Statistics for Science Majors, and Physics.

Undergraduate students may also enroll in a wide variety of campus offerings, from Physical Anthropology to Real World Technologies or Theatre as Cultural Dialogue to Victimology. Other popular undergraduate courses include American Art, American Journalism, Business Writing, Cognitive Psychology, Genetics, History of African Civilization, International Finance, Journalism, Research in Nursing, Social Work, Principles of Marketing, Television Film Writing, Western Civilization, and World History.

Associate Professor of Sociology Leslie A. Bunnage, Ph.D. discussed the experience of her popular Introduction to Sociology course (SOCI 1101). “Even though the class only spans three weeks, we meet daily and the condensed format over the summer makes the course experience feel like a unique sociological ‘boot camp’,” she explained. “Since there is less competition with other courses like during a typical semester, students are more engaged and get the opportunity to immerse themselves in the content. We also tend to have some students in the class who are not from Seton Hall, and the mix of students truly enriches the course.”

Graduate students can also gain an edge with such courses as Abnormal Psychology, Corporate Branding Strategy, Counseling Theory, Forces in Health Care, Foundations of Education, Network Analysis, and United Nations Insider's View.

Among the numerous faith-based web courses available are Catholic Theology, Creation and Science, Religions of the World, Modern Women of Faith, and Christian Ethics.
