Personal attention
With a 14:1 student-faculty ratio and an average class size of 21, faculty know more than just your name. At
Seton Hall you can begin working on research projects with faculty as early as your freshman year, and many students even attend conferences with faculty. At Seton Hall you’ll benefit from the close mentorship of faculty and a community dedicated to challenging and supporting you.

Hands-on learning
At Seton Hall you learn from doing. That’s why in addition to countless opportunities for research and scholarship, students can write for one of
our three newspapers, work for our award-winning radio station, conduct research for our Market Research Center, create public relations plans for local businesses, develop lesson plans for student teaching, or work in the sports polling center conducting polls commissioned by ESPN.

Seton Hall is a Catholic university with a nearly 160-year tradition of excellence. Seton Hall values integrity, compassion, and a commitment to helping others. A diverse and welcoming community, Seton Hall embraces students of all faiths and inspires students to become servant leaders who make a difference in the world.

Career advantage
Nestled in the suburban village of South Orange, New Jersey, Seton Hall provides the safe, quaint charm of a small town and the hustle and bustle of New York City life only 30 minutes away. Just hop on the train in the center of town and the worlds of entertainment, art, publishing, finance, and fashion; the United Nations; and thousands of major corporations
are at your doorstep. This translates to a career edge and unprecedented job opportunities, not to mention lots of career advantage. Seton Hall offers more than 17,000 internship opportunities, and more than 81% of students have an internship—or two—on their résumé before graduation. In fact, Seton Hall is ranked #4 in the nation for providing internship opportunities. Seton Hall students have an employment rate almost 20% higher than the national average and mid-career earnings 40% higher than the national average. Seton Hall offers a comprehensive Career Center, and your career counselor begins working with you freshman year.

 


 

AT A GLANCE

“Freshman year I conducted research with a faculty member, and we used expensive, high-tech equipment that most students don’t even have access to until graduate school. This and a recommendation from my professor helped me get
my internship freshman year at Merck.”
