"I cannot recommend going to Seton Hall. I graduated from this school years ago and I never got an interview or job as a result of graduating from Seton Hall. The school does not do anything to help you get a job and the career center is pathetic. The career center is staffed mainly with students who have never had a real job in life and have no contacts to help you get a job. The jobs they have listed are mainly entry-level low paying jobs. Don't believe me? Ask to see the jobs they have listed in the career center and you'll see how awful the jobs are that they have listed. And today the school costs more than $50,000 a year for tuition and room and board. It does not make any financial sense to spend over $200,000 for a Bachelor's degree that only gets you a job making $35,000 or less. You are way better off financially going to a state school and saving your money especially since there is no real advantage to graduating from Seton Hall."

"Seton Hall University is a school with a great reputation. However, it is up to you to use it to your advantage. it is very important to create a network with fellow students and teachers. Take advantage of the various support programs and advisers that are available to you. Get involved in the school and use it to develop yourself. I believe that it is a great school for business programs, heath care and nursing. It is world renown and there are large number of notable alumni take advantage of everything the school has to offer you. it will be what you make it"

"It's a private university so the price can be discouraging but it's very close to NYC and the connections are endless here. The program has four components which makes it easier to decide where you fit in exactly in the museums studies field. I highly recommend the profession and study"

"I believe Seton Hall University would be a great fit for anyone who truly wants to learn. The academics at this university have really gone beyond my expectations; the curriculum and professors here are the epitome of quality education. The coursework is challenging in the sense that it really does push you to excel in your academics while being guided by caring professors."

"Seton Hall University has amazing opportunities for its student to gain experience personally and professionally. For instance, Seton Hall encourages the students to not only excel in their studies, but to also be a leader and give back to the community. Leadership development courses and seminars are offered throughout the year. The school also take great pride in recognizing student leaders and their accomplishments."

"My time at Seton Hall was a roller coaster. There were some aspects of the program I was very grateful for and others that I felt really needed improvement. My Diplomacy professors were all very fascinating and well credentialed individuals. I enjoyed my time studying under their guidance. I did feel that as an undergraduate program the coursework was not truly able to develop. I was very fortunate that I secured an internship with an NGO in partnership with the United Nations and was exposed to a career in International Development. I was given UN Security clearance and had chances to meet ambassadors to different countries all over the world. I felt that Seton Hall was lacking harshly in its administrative support for students. Any time myself or other students needed to file paper work, ask for guidance or request information there was never a clear path or answer. I particularly recall having to visit the administrative office every day for two weeks to get my financial aid settled during my final year. My father had passed away changing a status in my financial needs and in addition to what was already a very traumatic experience, I had to advocate for myself several times a week in order to complete my year. I walked away from Seton Hall with experience and knowledge I am grateful for but I do not feel that for the price of tuition I truly received what I was paying for."

"Seton Hall University, specifically the School of Diplomacy and International Relations, has equipped me with the instrumental skills of communication, networking and hard work. The professors are working professionals, oftentimes at the UN and similar impressive organizations. They provide unique insight and personal anecdotes for their students, allowing us to grasp the realities of real-world diplomacy. Students are even invited to UN events that are typically closed to the public. Diplomacy courses are held once a week for 2.5 hours to accommodate the busy schedules of the professors. However, this set-up allows plenty of time for the students to complete heavy coursework. The rigor of the classes is a long-term benefit that, when coupled with the expertise of the instructors, leaves students well prepared for the work force. Even before graduation, students have access to many opportunities in politics, NGOs and organizations of their interest through internships. Seton Hall works with each student to find and tailor an internship to his/her liking. Being in the School of Diplomacy requires 2 credit internships to graduate. As a 5 year BS/MA student enrolled in both graduate and undergraduate courses, I am currently completing my senior internship requirement. However, it is no typical internship. I have worked both with the United Methodist Church Global Missions office and Seton Hall in order to form an internship specifically for me. This opportunity has taken me to Iquique, Chile, where I am working as an English Teachers assistant for grades 5-12. The incredible flexibility of Seton Hall has allowed me to gain international experience, work with children and take one step further towards my goal of a career at UNICEF. I highly recommend SHU School of Diplomacy to any prospective students."

"Seton Hall is conveniently located by New York City and with the convenient location comes with the ability to expand your horizons with internships and job opportunities. The professors and academic program is top notch because it is able to attract good professors. I find the campus to be beautiful and safe."

"The professional counseling program at Seton Hall University has a very strong curriculum. Some of the professors are excellent, inspiring, and extremely knowledgeable in their field; others are less engaged, and it is clear that teaching is not their main priority. The internship aspect of the program is challenging because the department is disorganized and unsupportive throughout the process. Ultimately, I do feel prepared to enter the field as a professional post-graduation."

"The School of Diplomacy has great things going for it, but a few downfalls. The professors are all prominent in their areas of studies and very well rounded, connected, and inspiring. However, a few are not the best teachers and have difficulty connecting real-world experience with undergraduate students in the classroom. The school has great connections to the UN and hosts many useful, informative events year-round. An area of improvement would be in preparing students for real world jobs and not focusing so much on theoretical approaches; more practical skill development should be ingrained in the curriculum."

"First thing, the school have a beautiful campus. There is a circular open space that other student can sit and hand around. Think of the great lawn of St. Johns but only (much) smaller. The library is great; computers available are decent that one can work with much problem. Seems like the school are really trying to upgrade their facilities. For my program, the professor are nice and helpful, and they will try to push you to do more so one can graduate with a better resume. Classes are fun and interesting, taking Buddhism in china and Japan, methodology in Asian Studies, and development of Chinese civilization. So there is a range of classes one can take which is nice. Last, I am loving the Dunkin' Donuts in the campus for coffee, hot chocolate and of course-donuts."

"Seton Hall University was an excellent choice for my graduate studies. The professors were all in the field that I was interested in and had a lot of life advice. The other students in the class were all actively involved in the learning process. We built a very strong network of support that I think will continue after we obtain our degrees."

"The faculty was very supportive and knowledgable. They supported you in everything you did and were readily available for meetings. The classes were enjoyable and there were many to choose from for my area of study. I was able to balance my class schedule, work load and my full-time job as the college was flexible in how many courses I took a semester. I loved the campus and would spend time there to study, even though I did not live on campus. I loved SHU and I am very happy with the fact that I am part of their alumni community!"

"As a current student at Seton Hall, I'm pleased with my choice to apply and attend here! The campus may be smaller than other universities, but the student community is closer-knit as a result. Working to earn a Masters degree is tough, but with supportive faculty and professors, students can reach their academic and career goals while participating in campus life. In the marriage and family therapy program, the faculty work with each student to ensure they are prepared and ready for internships, helping them to earn the credentials and hours required for licensure. I'm proud to be a Seton Hall Pirate!"

"Attending The M.A. Psychological Studies program at Seton Hall was a great experience and even better decision. First, I enjoyed the Seton Hall campus. Everyone I have ever met at here was friendly. There were many new buildings and I felt the layout was very organized. The previous school I had attended was the exact opposite so I'm still unsure if this is the standard or if Seton Hall holds up to my standard. The program I entered was the not what I thought it would be, and I mean that in a good way. My concentration was marriage and family therapy. Some of the classes were very different from what I had previously experience in undergrad. First off, there was a TON of reading, which any graduate student should be expecting. Most classes were very small, about ten people. Half of the classes were based mainly of student participation as opposed to a normal lecture. For me, this sometimes brought me out of my confront zone, especially when we had to do practice therapy sessions (part of my marriage and family concentration). I will say there were a couple easy classes that involved minimal reading and participation but there were also very tough classes that involved countless hours of studying. Overall the program not only taught me a great deal of the topics being covered but it also taught me a lot about myself, something I know other programs wouldn't do. For this, I am extraordinarily grateful and would definitely recommend Seton Hall to any perspective psychology student and others in general."

"Seton Hall University is a small school, and it creates a very small community, particularly in the diplomacy program. While this means you will be consistently exposed to the same people each year, it also means there is consistent support for one another among peers, professors and faculty. There are consistent emails about dozens of internships in a variety of fields, and open communication between career advisers and students who are willing to take advantage of their advice. The diplomacy program is geared towards preparing students for a career in the United Nations, almost to a determent, but the diplomatic theories we learn are applicable to other careers if we take time to apply them creatively."

"Being a prospective student can be a daunting task with all the colleges and universities to choose from. As a transfer student looking to start a second career, choosing the right college was easy for me. My criteria included whether or not my major was part of the curriculum, location, cost and ratings based on alumni/alumna. I truly loved Seton Hall University because of the teaching staff. Achieving academic excellence is no easy feat but with a supportive teaching staff to spend extra time through additional meetings it becomes more attainable. Seton Hall University was a very inviting campus with an overall friendly student body. Attending meetings, study sessions and discussions among fellow peers did not feel so lonely. Seton Hall University made it very easy to thrive both educationally and socially with the right attitude. I would definitely recommend Seton Hall University to any fellow peer interested in pursuing a career in the healthcare industry based on my own personal experiences that spanned four years."
