The Jesuit University of New Jersey
What happens when you put one of the world’s greatest teaching organizations next to one of the world’s greatest cities? You get Saint Peter’s University, a Jesuit institution just 12 minutes from New York City. Established in 1872, Saint Peter’s provides a unique learning experience shaped by rigorous academics, internships that provide real-word experience, community service, and a genuine, caring community that supports you long after graduation.
With an undergraduate student-faculty ratio of 13:1 and a stellar faculty committed to success, Saint Peter’s offers more than 50 undergraduate majors as well as master’s and doctoral degree programs. We’re small enough to know you by name and big enough to bring the world to your door.
Saint Peter’s is one of 27 Jesuit colleges in the country—and the only one in New Jersey. For us, Jesuit means our students come here to earn a degree but leave with so much more. They develop a desire to serve—whether it’s for a cause, with an organization, or through a lifelong commitment to giving back. Students build an unshakeable foundation of ethics to guide their future achievements. Our Jesuit-based education not only prepares them for their careers but inspires them to be caring, contributing members of society.
We have just one goal in mind: helping you achieve yours. The Center for Career Engagement and Experiential Learning (CEEL) is dedicated to career development through guidance, résumé building, and career fairs. Internships, employer partnerships, and alumni networking prepare you for a career after graduation. Additionally, University faculty enrich your classroom experience through research and practical knowledge. Our professors are committed to blending critical-thinking skills with real-life learning to create a meaningful education.
