Seton Hall University will host its annual Graduate Open House on Saturday, February 23 from noon to 3 p.m. in Bethany Hall on the South Orange Campus.
Representatives from graduate degree and certificate programs in high-demand fields of business, communication, diplomacy and international relations, education, health and medical sciences, law, nursing, science and theology will be available to meet with attendees face-to-face to speak about admission requirements and curriculum, as well as answer questions about advancing one's current career or beginning a new one.
Current students and alumni will also offer a first-hand perspective about the graduate student experience, and how Seton Hall informed and aided their professional and personal growth.
Breakout sessions, hosted by the College of Arts &Sciences, Stillman School of Business, College of Communication and the Arts, College of Nursing, School of Theology, College of Education and Human Services, and the School of Diplomacy and International Relations, will allow attendees to ask questions about applying for grad school, experience a mini-class, gain "value-added" professional development, or learn more about the industry.
Attendees can also discover how to financially plan their graduate education. Staff will be on hand to provide information about graduate assistantships and scholarship opportunities. The Career Center will also be available to discuss resources for assisting with professional networking, resume building, interviewing, and development workshops.
Visitors are encouraged to end the day with a tour of the campus and enjoy a selection of refreshments.
Christopher Cuccia, Ed.D., Associate Provost for Academic Affairs states, "The Graduate Open House at Seton Hall serves as an exciting opportunity for anyone who is considering graduate school, regardless of whether they are a seasoned professional looking to advance their career, an undergraduate student looking to continue their education, or an adult learner seeking an opportunity for personal enrichment. A graduate degree is becoming an increasingly sought-after credential for a variety of reasons: increased earning potential, the chance to pursue one's research interests in greater depth, the chance to distinguish oneself in the job market. The Graduate Open House at Seton Hall is a unique opportunity for all because of its comprehensive and personalized nature."
Graduate, certificate and continuing education courses are offered on a full-or part-time basis and are designed for working professionals with night and weekend options. Programs are available online, on-campus or in hybrid format.
