What are the faculty’s qualifications?
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 online instructors are longtime full-time Seton Hall faculty who have terminal degrees and also 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 online students.
How do online courses work?
In our online courses, you will access a virtual classroom using an online learning management system. Just as you would in a traditional course, you will be required to complete your assignments according to a set schedule, maintain contact with your instructor and participate with classmates using online discussion forums. Your required assignments might include readings, writing papers and other projects. Our online students often report that their online learning experience is even better than the traditional classes they’ve completed because of the engagement and discussion they experience learning with fellow students from around the country and across the globe.
Do I have to be online at a certain time each day or week?
No. You may choose the days and times you want to log in to the Internet to work on an assignment. But you must complete your assignments and submit them by the specified dates and times.
Are all the programs fully online?
Most of the Seton Hall’s online graduate programs are fully online, with no on-campus components or required residencies built in.
The M.B.A. program requires a two-day on-campus orientation. For more information, see the M.B.A. overview page.
