A Tradition of Academic Excellence
For nearly 160 years Seton Hall has been a place where leaders learn. A leading Catholic university, Seton Hall offers more than 90 rigorous academic programs that are highly ranked by The Princeton Review, U.S.News and World Report and Bloomberg Businessweek.
Seton Hall offers all the advantages of a large research university — a national reputation, challenging academic programs, notable alumni, state-of-the-art facilities, renowned faculty and extensive opportunities for internships, research and scholarship — with all benefits of a small, supportive and nurturing community.
Our academic success stories include more than 2 dozen student and alumni national scholars and fellows, including 18 prestigious Fulbright Scholars since 2009, as well as Rhodes, Udall, Pickering, Critical Language and Truman Scholars.
Our accomplished faculty is made up of scholars, grant-funded researchers, authors, artists, filmmakers, former school superintendents and principals, nursing leaders, former ambassadors, business leaders, analysts and lawmakers — all of whom are dedicated to their fields and their students. Our dozens of faculty Fulbright Award winners use the insights they've gained teaching and conducting research overseas to broaden the minds and perspectives of our students. Each day, our faculty demonstrates an unwavering commitment to both their students and fields of expertise. They are supportive and encouraging, meeting regularly with students outside the classroom to help them learn to think critically, develop professionally and become well-rounded, passionate servant-leaders.
Each year, our graduates join our nearly 100,000 successful Seton Hall alumni in the workforce. Their titles vary widely: CEOs, journalists, judges, prominent attorneys, vice presidents of nursing, CFOs, superintendents of schools, educators, entrepreneurs, authors, researchers, diplomats and doctors; but, most importantly, they are using their Seton Hall education to make a difference in the world. They're leading the way in Fortune 500 companies and making their mark at the United Nations, on Wall Street, and in classrooms, hospitals and boardrooms across the country. Their common denominator: a Seton Hall diploma.
