Seton Hall University


About Seton Hall University

For more than 154 years, Seton Hall University has been a catalyst for leadership, developing the whole student — 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 by train, bus or car to New York City, with the wealth of employment, internship, cultural and entertainment opportunities the city offers. Seton Hall is a Catholic university that embraces students of all races and religions, challenging each to better the world through integrity, compassion and a commitment to serving others.

The College of Education and Human Services

The online counseling and school counseling programs are based within Seton Hall University's College of Education and Human Services. The College's online campus supports and extends the University's mission by delivering high quality, career-enhancing education through a combination of technologies and instructional methods. These programs combine a dynamic Web-based learning experience grounded in the history and tradition of Seton Hall University.

At the College of Education and Human Services, our primary mission is to prepare teachers, school leaders, counselors, psychologists, therapists and law enforcement leaders to serve children, adults, schools, communities, clinics and those most in need in society. We accomplish our mission through values-oriented, high quality programs that meet or exceed professional accreditation, certification or licensing standards. Our College is accredited by the National Council for Accreditation of Teacher Education, and many of our programs are nationally recognized or accredited through their respective professional associations.

The online division of Seton Hall University is SetonWorldWide

Courses Taught by Accomplished Faculty

Our national and international faculty are highly accomplished educators and experts. We engage professional practitioners and faculty members who have demonstrated significant achievements in their respective fields. Most of our nearly 60 instructors are full-time Seton Hall faculty who have terminal degrees. All instructors meet the faculty qualifications established by Seton Hall University. Many faculty members are long-serving and long-standing members of the University community who have taught, and continue to teach, in Seton Hall's traditional on-campus programs. Their knowledge of these programs allows them to create a seamless and dynamic online educational experience for their SetonWorldWide students.

High Level of Interactivity

The high faculty-to-student ratio (1:10) generates high faculty-to-student and student-to-student interaction. Course grading and student evaluation is not only based on written performance, but is also based on level of student engagement with faculty and other students in the class. Ongoing dialogue and the learning team approach — with students beginning and ending their program all together — results in an intimate community of learners that extend beyond graduation.
