This Catalogue presents the graduate curricula and courses officially recognized by Seton Hall University at the start of the 2023-2024 academic year. These official curricula represent your degree requirements.
As fields of study are constantly evolving, a majority of majors and minors will have some kind of variance from one official Catalogue to the next. Under ordinary circumstances, these changes apply to all students who began their study at Seton Hall no earlier than the year the change took effect. In other words, if you started at Seton Hall in Fall 2023 or earlier, new changes that are introduced in Spring 2024 or later will not apply to you and your requirements (though they still might be of benefit to you and your academic career). An exception might be in a discipline (a health profession, for example) in which an external accreditor assures the public that the training received by a graduate is complete and current; the accreditor may on occasion require immediate changes to protect the public. Otherwise, “your” Catalogue is the Catalogue that was current when you began your studies as a matriculated student. This year is noted on your degree program tracker. At Seton Hall we recommend that, while you will also benefit from keeping current with changes posted in future Catalogues, you keep your copy for the duration of your career at Seton Hall.
While many aspects of Seton Hall’s operations affect and benefit both undergraduate and graduate education, there is a separate distinctly graduate Catalogue that is regularly updated in print and available on the www.shu.edu website. Some of our constituent colleges also maintain distinct Catalogues, such as the School of Law.
The first few sections of this document provide important information about Student Services, Admissions, Organizations, Accreditations, Special Offices, the campus and the like. Some helpful resources are found at the end of this book, including an index and directories of Full-time, Adjunct, and Retired and Emeritus faculty as well as the names of the Presidents’ Cabinet and the Deans, our Board of Trustees and Board of Regents, and other useful listings. Between these sections, most of the information about curricula, majors and courses is organized by the home College or School in which the course of study resides.
Home to nearly 10,000 undergraduate and graduate students, Seton Hall has reached new heights in academic excellence, faculty research and student success. Ready to take the next steps on your academic or career path?
