Choosing to pursue a graduate degree is a defining moment, but it can be challenging to fit your education into a busy schedule. Caldwell University offers solutions with nationally accredited programs, including several available 100% online. We currently serve approximately 600 graduate students who are enrolled in a variety of programs in the following disciplines: Applied Behavior Analysis, Business, Counseling, Education, and Nursing. We offer flexible yet challenging career-related degrees and programs that prepare students with the advanced knowledge and skills appropriate to their specific professional goals. The hallmarks of a Caldwell University education are small class sizes, individual attention, and a quality faculty and staff committed to our students.

Caldwell offers the Master of Business Administration (MBA) and a Master of Science in Accounting. Both programs are offered online and accredited by the Accreditation Council for Business Schools and Programs (ACBSP). The MBA program offers a rigorous 33-credit curriculum with concentrations in Accounting, Global Business, Healthcare Administration, Human Resource Management, Marketing, and Sport Management. 

The University offers a number of programs that help prepare educators to become leaders in their fields. Our Education program is accredited by the Council for the Accreditation of Educator Preparation (CAEP). Areas of study include Administration, Curriculum & Instruction, Educational Leadership, ESL Certification, Higher Education, Literacy Instruction, Special Education, and Post-baccalaureate Teacher Certification.  

Applied Behavior Analysis (ABA)
Our master’s, post-master’s, and doctoral programs in Applied Behavior Analysis provide students with the skills and experiences to become leaders in the field. Caldwell is one of only eight schools worldwide with Association for Behavior Analysis International (ABAI) accreditation in both master’s and doctoral programs. Our master’s and post-master’s programs meet the requirements to prepare graduates to become Board Certified Behavior Analysts. Students enrolled in an ABA program may have the opportunity to learn and work in the Caldwell University Center for Autism & Applied Behavior Analysis. 

All three areas of Caldwell’s graduate Counseling programs have received accreditation from the Council for Accreditation of Counseling & Related Educational Programs (CACREP). In fact, our Master of Arts in Counseling with a specialization in Mental Health Counseling/Art Therapy was the first Art Therapy program in the country to hold CACREP accreditation. Professional school counselors are certified/licensed educators with a minimum of a master’s degree in School Counseling. 

The University now offers an online Master of Science in Nursing in Population Health program—the first of its kind in New Jersey—to prepare students to serve as leaders in nursing and health care. You’ll graduate qualified to work in a number of positions within a variety of health care systems, including care coordinators and project, case, and nurse managers in outpatient facilities, hospitals, public health departments, and insurance and quality improvement fields.
