Since 1856, Seton Hall University has been a catalyst for leadership, developing the whole student, in mind, heart and spirit. Seton Hall combines the resources of a large university with the personal attention of a small liberal arts college. Its attractive suburban campus is only 14 miles outside of New York City, with the wealth of employment, internship, cultural and entertainment opportunities the city offers. Seton Hall students — who hail from all 50 states and 67 countries — choose from a wide range of majors, including communication, business, diplomacy, nursing and education. Seton Hall’s emphasis on academic excellence has led to a marked increase in the number of students and professors chosen for prestigious academic awards. As the nation’s oldest diocesan Catholic university, Seton Hall embraces students of all races and religions, challenging each to better the world with integrity, compassion and a commitment to serving others.
