New Interprofessional Health Science Campus
The recently opened Hackensack Meridian School of Medicine at Seton Hall University is designed to produce exceptional physicians who truly understand what drives health and disease, know how to integrate technology and systems into their thinking and practice, and are able to improve the health outcomes of all populations. The School of Medicine is located at the University’s new Interprofessional Health Science Campus alongside Seton Hall’s College of Nursing and School of Health and Medical Sciences.

The colocation of the Nursing and Health and Medical Sciences with the new School of Medicine is designed to mirror how health care will be delivered in the future. This team-based approach will train students from medicine, nursing, occupational and physical therapy, and other related fields together to improve patient care.

Seton Hall’s innovative joint bachelor’s/MD program allows students to transition seamlessly from a bachelor’s degree at the University to the MD program at the Hackensack Meridian School of Medicine at Seton Hall University. 

What great minds can do—graduate studies at Seton Hall University
Exceptional scholarship, personal growth, and professional achievement are hallmarks of graduate study at Seton Hall University. As one of the nation’s leading Catholic universities, Seton Hall offers more than 100 rigorous and highly sought-aftergraduate programs in Business, the health professions, Nursing, Law, Social Work, Psychology, Communications, Diplomacy and International Relations, Education, and the sciences and humanities. The University also provides various traditional, interdisciplinary, and joint-degree options—on campus and online—and offers assistantships and scholarships for select graduate students.

Our main campus is located in suburban South Orange, New Jersey, and our nationally ranked School of Lawis in nearby downtown Newark. Ournew Interprofessional Health Sciences campus in Clifton and Nutley, New Jersey, brings together our graduate programs in Nursing, Health Sciences, and Medicine in a state-of-the-art facility where students are team taught to reflect the future of health care delivery. 

Our over 3,000 graduate students are afforded a highly personalized education through extensive interaction with faculty members, many of whom are leaders in their fields. Our professors provide invaluable mentorship in support of students’ educational and professional interests. We’re proud that Seton Hall has been singled out for academic distinction by The Princeton Review, U.S. News & World Report, and Bloomberg Businessweek. 

New graduate programs
The Master of Science in Physics program, Seton Hall’s newest master’s degree, began in fall 2018. This 30- credit program is designed for young researchers with a basic knowledge of advanced physics who are interested in areas such as laser spectroscopy, solid-state physics, advanced materials synthesis and characterization, photonics, plasma physics, biophysics, and surface physics, preparing them to meet the demands of modern industry.

Another recent addition to our graduate programs is the Master of Social Work (MSW). The Bureau of Labor Statistics forecasts a 16% growth for social work professionals. Our MSWstudents are keen to take advantage of this promising trend and experience the rewards of helping people inneed. For students without a bachelor’s degree in Social Work, the program can be completed in two years, with the first year consisting of on-campus course work. Students with a degree in Social Work go straight into the second year of the program, which includes online courses and on-site field work.

Why choose just one?
When your interests cover different academic areas, it may be difficult to select a single path to follow. At Seton Hall, we offer numerous dual-degree options that allow you to pursue graduate degrees in multiple areas such as Business, Law, Asian Studies, International Relations, Medicine, Communication, Nursing, and Health Care Administration. Combining an MBA with a degree in Nursing, Diplomacy, or Law, for example, can provide a distinctive edge in the job market. 

Benefits beyond the classroom
The advantages of a Seton Hall education go well beyond the knowledge you’ll gain in class. As a graduate student, you’ll be plugged into an active global alumni network that is 100,000 strong and growing. Plus, you’ll have access to extensive results-oriented career resources that will connect you with professional internships and job opportunities worldwide. You can conduct research or study in our impressive University Libraries and have full access to our recently expanded Regan Recreation and Athletic Center.
